Scór na nÓg :

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.

U-15 Dublin Hurling League Div 4 .

Bray Emmets 9-10 Naomh Fionbarra 1-06

The eagerly awaited return fixture with Naomh Fionbarra threw in at 7pm in excellent conditions on pitch 4 in Old Conna on Thursday evening. Emmets started the half with great focus and intensity, and winning individual match ups all over the pitch, began to build a score. The backs worked very well as a unit, and with Ben as sharp as ever in goals, Fionbarra were always under pressure to score. The forwards work rate was excellent and cohesive and Emmets went to the break leading 4-06 to 0-3.

Fionbarra stormed into the second half, and after 10 minutes both sides had scored a goal and a point, but Emmets refocussed and with the defence conceding just another 2 points, the forwards added 4 further goals to secure the tie. From 1-20, this was an excellent showing. There were so many standout performances that all players deserve special mention. So, to each and all well done on the effort, work rate, skill and intensity you showed.

This puts the u-15 hurlers in an unassailable position at the top of their league with just one match left, and the winners of their division, having gone through the campaign undefeated. Well done to all the players on the fantastic progress they have made individually and as a team this year.

Team: Ben, Tadhg Mac, Luan, Jack, Dan F, Adam, Eoin Sam (3-03) Peter (0-01) Andrew (0-01) Rory (2-0), Cathal, Dan M, Zack ( 2-02), Brian (1-03) Jamie, Oscar(1-01), Tadhg A, Conor G, Rian.
