The Leitrim Scor committee have resigned en-bloc in protest at the decision to axe the Novelty Act and Question Time events from Scor.
The decision to cut the events from the Scor programme of events has met with a strong response as the Leitrim Coiste Cultúir agus Teangato committee, the Connacht Coiste Scór and the Longford committee have resigned en-bloc.
The Leitrim Coiste Cultúir agus Teanga issued a statement: “Coiste Cultúir Liatroma are completely dissatisfied with the Ard-Chomhairle decision to remove Nuachleas and Trath na gCeisteanna from the Scór programme. We are also dismayed by the manner and process by which this decision was made, without the approval of Coiste Náisiúnta Scór or the goodwill of the Scór fraternity.
“Coiste Cultúir agus Teanga Liatroma considers that it would not be possible to run a meaningful Leitrim Scór or Scór na nÓg without these two competitions which are well-supported and central to the running of Scór. The Coiste has decide to resign en-bloc in protest at this decision and demands that:
1) Nuachleas and Trath na gCeisteanna be restored to the programme for Scór na nÓg and Scór 2014
2) That a Scór congress or seminar be convened in 2014 to discuss any changes that may be proposed to Scór and Scór na nÓg.
