At a meeting of the Munster Scor on Monday night last it was announced that the Novelty Act will after all be part of the Scor programme; it will now be called Leiriu.

At a meeting of the Munster Scor on Monday night last it was announced that the Novelty Act will after all be part of the Scor programme; it will now be called Leiriu (READ E MAIL FOR DETAILS). If possible could you get this included in your weekly parish notes for next weeks Kerryman. Please make sure all Club Scor Officers receive a copy of this. This will apply to all Scor competitions for 2013/14.
Thanks; Coiste Scor Chiarrai Thuaidh, Jack Hennessy.

The National Scór Committee has this week issued the new rule book for Scór competitions.
The important changes to note
1. The new category called Léiriú will replace the Novelty act. Groups are still encouraged to write their own scripts with elements of live music, dance and comedy. The biggest difference between Léiriú and the Novelty is that Comórtas Léiriú must depict an event or events from the history or mythology of Ireland or the history or mythology of the country of birth/origin of member(s) of the
cast.
2. The categories of Recitation, Léiriú, Solo singing and Ballad may include pieces based on Irish history and folklore or on the history and folklore of the country of birth/origin of the competitor.
3. The quiz will continue to be organised by Scór but will be held on a different night. It will be a table quiz with 10 rounds of 10 questions. There will be a county final with each winner from the 32 counties participating in the All Ireland final. This will be held on the eve of the All Ireland Scór Finals. The categories for the 10 rounds are
1) Gaelic and Ladies Football
2) Hurling and Camogie
3) Babhta amháin as Gaeilge ar imeachtaíChumann Lúthchleas Gael.
Freagraí as Gaeilge amháin
4) Irish History
5) World History
6) Irish Geography
7) Irish Current Affairs
8) World Current Affairs
9) Irish Culture
10) General Knowledge.

SCOR SINSEAR CRAOBH NA hEIREANN 2012/13.
The Glenflesk Figure Dancers of, Angela McCarthy, Linda O Donoghue, Siobhain Cashman, Mairead Cashman, Norita Cashman, Lisa Cronin, Cliona Creedon, Niamh Favier and Maria Cronin along with their Dancing Teacher, Norrie Sheehan and many supporters made the long trip to the Dome, in County Derry on Saturday last for the All Ireland Finals of Senior Scor. In fairness it was a duel between Omagh, St. Endas and Glenflesk for the title but unfortunately even though the Kingdom ladies danced to perfection and were well in contention for honours it was the Tyrone Club who received what must be a split decision when the Adjudicators made their final deliberations. However great credit is due to all associated with this wonderful group of ladies who have done both their Club and County proud and certainly there is no shame in defeat when you can perform like they did.
