Instrumental Groups / Ceol Uirlise again comprises of 3-5 members. Over the years we have  seen a vast range of musical instrument debuting in Scór na bPáistí with the group only required to play 1 tune. Old favourites are ” Maggie in the Woods ” and ” The Kesh Jig “
Figure Dancing / Rince Foirne  Dancing can be the highlight of the night for some spectators , 3 & 6 hand reels are very popular here and then we have some clubs who are steeped in dancing that might dance  ” trip to the cottage”.
 Set Dancing / Rince Seit . Set dancing is very popular in certain areas in the County and they turn out for Scor and display their ” Cavan Reel” or the “Plain Set “
