Scór na nÓg :
As the days grow shorter and the nights grow colder, our thoughts turn to the County Scór competitions. As you are aware, theScór na n-Óg County Final is being hosted by Blessington GAA club this year and it promises to be an excellent night of entertainment. It takes place on Friday 20th October. We are aiming to have entries from as many clubs as possible in our final this year so please get searching for singers, dancers, musicians and actors who would like to represent their club in a County and possibly a Leinster or All- Ireland Final! I have included a link to the Scór rulebook in this email and if any club would like hard copies of this please let me know.
The closing date for entries for Scór na n-Óg is Wednesday 18th October but we would appreciate these entries as soon as possible as we need to appoint adjudicators for the appropriate competitions. Entries can be sent to [email protected] or by phone/text to086 8664931.

Blessington GAA will proudly host the Scór na nÓg on Fri 20th Octobr 2017. Scór is a GAA competition that combines all the colour and rivalry of Gaelic Games with the social/fun element of Ireland’s traditional past-times. The competition was established by the GAA in 1969 with the aim of promoting Ireland’s traditional pastimes and culture while offering club members the chance to meet up, have fun and represent their club during the winter months while Football and Hurling had ceased.
There are eight events/disciplines in Scór that cover all aspects of Irish culture: Figure/Céilí Dancing, Solo Singing, Ballad Group, Recitation/Scéalaíocht, Léiriú Stáitse/Stage Presentation, Instrumental Music, Set Dancing and Table Quiz. The competition is divided into two age levels, Scór na nÓg, for young people under 17 and Scór Sinsir, for those over 17.
Dates for your Diary:
Saturday 23rd September: Kick Fada/Family Fun Day. 11-3
Bray 5-8 Avondale 0-2
The Intermediate Championship Final took place in Baltinglass on Saturday Sept 16th at 2pm. Preparation for this final had been intense and this certainly paid off for the Bray girls. The game commenced under grey clouds but thankfully the rain held off for most of the game.
Avondale got off to a good start with a point from play in the first couple of minutes.About 5 minutes after that Rachel Rice rattled the Avondale net with the first goal of the match. This was followed by further scores from Rachel, Jane Butler, Leah Carroll, Niamh McCormack and Eleanor Carroll Hayes. Bray dominated the first half and although Avondale scored another point they failed to get past the Bray defence other than that. Sara Davis had an excellent game ably assisted by sister Emma and a very solid back line including Brona Murphy and Lauren Sweeney. Orlagh O Kane , who returned from Derry for the game, was very influential at centre back.
Jane Butler had a brilliant game at midfield and really played her heart out despite having to be blood subbed on a couple of occasions. All in all, the Bray team and all the subs played a lovely free flowing game of camogie reflecting well on their committment and the experience they gained during the year.Avondale played hard and played very well but they were unable to convert their opportunities into scores.
Final score Bray 5g 8 points; Avondale 2 points
We hope that this Bray Adult Camogie team will go on to compete very well at Senior Level next year.
