Teachtaireacht ó Chathaoirleach Choiste Náisiúnta Scór, Aodán Ó Braonáin
Ag an am seo den bhliain ba cheart go mbeadh ‘fáiltiú’ á scríobh agam roimh mhuintir Scór chuig Babhtaí Ceannais Scór Sinsir na hÉireann san INEC i gCill Airne. Is mór an trua nach féidir linn dul ar aghaidh leis na comórtaisí, go háirithe dóibh siúd atá tar éis Craobh an Chondae a bhuachaint. Caithimid cloí le comhairle an Rialtais agus, sa deireadh thiar thall, caithfidh muid tús áite a thabhairt do shláinte agus fholláine an phobail.
The cancellation of our Scór Sinsir All-Ireland Finals due to be held in the INEC Killarney is a grave disappointment to all involved in GAA Scór. For those who have trained hard, won a county title and hoped for All-Ireland glory it is especially difficult. However, the health and safety of our communities and especially our senior citizens, many of whom are among our most loyal supporters, must take precedence.
As we have no indication as to how long the present restrictions will apply it is difficult to plan for the future. Coiste Náisiúnta Scór will be guided by advice from the Ard-Stiurthóir in any decision to resume live competition. It is our current intention to complete the current Scór Sinsir competition before commencing the 2021 renewal.
While our live Scór competitions are in hibernation there is a vibrant and varied Scór programme of activity being run online. “Vitual Scór” affords the opportunity to perform in a multiple of disciplines on Facebook, (GAA Scór Oifigiúl) and the range of performance and creativity on display has been outstanding. County and provincial Scór committees are actively promoting performance and celebrating past performers on social media. A diary of upcoming events can be found on “GAA Scór Oifigiúil” on Facebook.
Many of our Scór participants and followers are involved in the war on Covid 19 as frontline workers in healthcare, social-care, policing and voluntary work across the island of Ireland. Our thoughts, prayers and gratitude are with you all.
Fan sa bhaile, fan sábháilte ach leanaigí ar aghaidh ag canadh, ag casadh ceoil, ag damhsa agus insint scéalta.
