Went to All Ireland final in Castlebar Saturday.  Great crowd - biggest in years.  50 Years of Scor.  MC awful however.  Why would Scor have shot themselves in the foot like this?  Mumbled his way through the event. Another thing is that Scor seems to be dying in counties, and yet at this level, it's still a great day's entertainment.

We were delighted in Newport winning the Leiriu. Also my home club in Ferbane won the Ballad singing, so a great weekend all round.

There are plenty of other organisations who promote music and dancing.

The GAA should focus on its 3 core sports. Football, hurling, handball.

No I strongly disagree.

It’s said many times that the gaa club is the hub of the community. In some places it is. A lot of cases, it’s not. Loads of clubs I know cater for underage teams. Girls and boys. Fair enough. But once over 16, left school etc, a few will remain, play u-21, senior but the majority will drop out and be more or less lost to the club. Because there’s very little else for them. The only ones catered for are the elite senior footballers.

If a youngster isn’t that good at football, he’ll hardly feel like a valued club member. After underage, that’s him gone. But he could’ve been a great rounders player, handballer, Irish dancer, solo singer, a great quizzer, Irish language speaker, stage performer etc. But if the club doesn’t cater for any of the above, he’s gone forever. And he mightn’t get his own kids involved with the club either.

If the gaa club really is the hub of the community, it has to cater for all of the community. Scor should be a huge part of that.

Scór is absolutely brilliant. It's just a pity a lot more people don't realise this.

Some clubs promote scor instead of fielding a team in hurling, football or getting a handball or rounders section going

There are other organisations who already more than cater for Irish music, dancing and other events

How does that work? Scór is a winter/spring activity. Unless you're lucky enough to get to an All Ireland Final, you're out of Scór na nÓg in January and Scór Sinsir in March at the latest. If that's the best excuse a club has for not playing actual sports for the rest of the year, it's a lame one.

I believe Kilkenny is the only county that has yet to win an All-Ireland title in Scor.

Culture i.e. music and dancing is part of the GAA as much as football, hurling and camogie.

A fantastic outlet for people who don't play any sport or have retired etc.  Great for the young people also.  At football, they get abuse hurled on them whereas it's great to be part of Scór.

Scór is far more entertaining than a game of senior league football any day of the week.

I love all these people who are 'great gaels' but don't want our language and culture to be part of the modern GAA.

You haven't answered my previous questions. You're trolling.

No, Irish culture also has some begrudgery.
