TG4’s brand new show searching for the best traditional Irish talent act in Ireland begins tonight.
Each year the GAA hosts Scór Na nÓg and each year thousands of children and teenagers across the county battle it out under the banner of their GAA club, in their chosen category, in music, song, dance or performance, each hoping to represent their counties in the national final. Tonight on TG4, they take it to the next level in Scór Encore.
Over 13 episodes, Scór Encore will feature the top performers from this year’s Scór Na nÓg competition, each hoping to be crowned TG4’s most talented traditional performer, 2013.
