There has been a big increase in the number of schools participating in Scór na mBunscoileanna this year. Entries are up 50% with sixteen schools about to participate. Since Scór na mBunscoileanna started two years ago it was possible to run it off in one night. However this year there will be two nights of competition and the good news is that Coiste Scór Liatroma have decided that the winners on both nights will get medals. Each night will be run independent of the other, there will be no County Final as such, but the winners of each competition on both nights will receive medals.
This year there will be a plaque for presentation to the best school overall. The plaque has been donated by the MacGiolla Family to commemorate the late Cormac MacGiolla who was the man who initiated Scór na mBunscoileanna just two years ago. Since then it has developed countrywide.
There are two new competitions this year: solo music and solo dance and these have also generated great interest. Each school is being asked to have one person with them who would help at stewarding on the night. Each night will start with Tr?th na gCeisteanna at 6.30 promptly. The other events will start with Rince Foirne at 7.00 sharp. The venues and schools taking part are as follows:
Thursday 9 November in Gortletteragh, starting promptly at 6.30 with Tr?th na gCeisteanna: Cluain?n, Achadh Easa, Maothail, Gort Leitreach, Droim M?le, Barr na Cuille, Carraig ?lainn, Gaelscoil Cora Droma R?isc, Drom?n M?r.
Friday 10 November in Ballinamore, starting promptly at 6.30 with Tr?th na gCeisteanna: Achadh Mhaoileann, Droim Liath, Achadh na Sileann, Cill Tiobraid, Droim Caorthainn, F?onach, Liatroim.
Beidh dh? o?che iontach maith ag lucht leanta Scór Liatroma.
