With the birth of Scór in 1969 the GAA through its clubs has become actively involved in promoting Irish culture in a meaningful and enjoyable manner. Language and culture are amongst the most important elements of Irish heritage.
The GAA, through it's many clubs throughout the country and through Scór nÓg and Scór Sinsear, has played a significant part in the revival of our culture and heritage in creating an understanding and interest in its importance.Scór competitions commence in each county with clubs competing to represent their county in one of the many different Scór events.
County winners go through to the Provincial Finals with the winners at that stage qualifying for the All-Ireland Finals.
Scór is divided in two sections.
Scór na nÓg caters for the younger GAA members while Scór Sinsear caters for adults members.
The national finals of both Scór na nÓg and Scór Sinsear are a wonderful occasion and winning a national title is a tremendous honour for any club.
Killeshandra Scór was founded nearly 34 years ago in October 1977. With such a wide and long established tradition of Irish music, song and dance in Killeshandra it was inevitable that Scór would generate a keen interest.
Since then Killeshandra has been actively involved in both Scór na nÓg and Scór Sinsear annual competitions. The club has been successful in many county finals in all eight disciplines – reaching Ulster finals on many occasions and being crowned Ulster champions in Rince Fóirne, Ceol Uirlise, Nuachleas and Tráth na gCeist.
History was made for club and county with the winning of the Novelty act in the Scór na nÓg All Ireland final in Limerick in 1982. This was county Cavan’s first All Ireland victory in Scór.
Club Cill Na Sean Rátha is still a vibrant and active participant in Scór, this year taking part in Scór na nÓg and Scór Sinsear with the Senior Set emerging as winners of the county title.
