Scór founder Derry Gowen honoured by Munster Council

Exceptional dedication to the promotion of culture within the GAA earned Scór founder Derry Gowen due recognition of Life Membership from the Munster Scór Committee at a presentation in the Grand Hotel, Fermoy.

Scór derives its origins from the GAA, founded by the Fermoy native as a means to promote the country’s native identity. Down through the years, the upswing and development of cultural activity is partly to Scór involvement.

The profile of Scór has grown substantially over the years and that’s a reflection of the individuals and teams that have graced some of the prominent stages across the country.

Munster Scór Cathoirleach Jim Enright said the Scór competition has provided a very important social and cultural dimension to the GAA since it’s foundation in 1969 and took delight on bestowing the honour of Life membership on Derry Gowen.

Present to pay tribute to Derry were provincial, county, divisional and club representatives including Anthony Walsh, Cisteoir, Munster Council CLG; Jerry Doody, Cork; Michael Dolan, former Cork GAA Chairman; Daithí Pierce, Avondhu and Tommy O’Brien, Fermoy.
