Frankie , can you forward to all club secretaries please.
The following things have changed in the Scór rule book. If anyone has any questions, please Contact me.
Le gach deá-ghuí
Your attention is drawn to the following:
There will be a single adjudicator for each competition at all levels.
An Adjudicator may adjudicate more than one competition but organising committees are advised that in light of the criteria for adjudication (outlined below ) that a team of competent adjudicators is the preferred option.
The criteria for Adjudication have been reviewed with an emphasis being placed on the need for adjudicators to have
recognised competence in the discipline they are adjudicating
a competence in Gaeilge in disciplines such as Aithriseoireacht, Amhránaíocht, Bailéad Ghrúpa & Léiriú
Counties and provinces must submit lists of proposed adjudicators at the start of each Scór season. Provinces must use different adjudicators from different counties in successive years and where practicable counties should do likewise.
Order Of Competitions
Bailéad Ghrúpa and Ceol Uirlise have “swapped places” in the Clár.
Some changes have been made to the Marking matrices.
A qualification of the timing rule has been made. The competition may proceed with or without curtain. Fear/Bean an Tí will announce “Time starts Now” to commence time and timing will cease once a clear stage is shown.
A bell will be rung at the end of the maximum allotted time in Léiriú and Aithriseoireacht to indicate that the competitor is incurring time penalties as/if they continue.
The corrected version will be put up on the GAA website ASAP.
