Poc Fada and Poc Ghearr raise over €800 for Marymount Hospice

Our annual Poc Fada took place on St. Patricks Day and the cold weather didn’t put off our members and supporters from coming out and taking on the challenge. A great day was had by all and €660 was raised for Marymount Hospice, a fantastic total. Earlier that morning, the future stars of Carraig na bhFear took to the roads of the village and showed off their skills before enjoying some light refreshments in the community hall. This venture also helped to raise a further €145.86 for Marymount Hospice, bringing the total amount raised to over €805. Thanks to everyone for your support and generosity.

Our annual Poc Fada will take place once again this year on St. Patricks day, 17th March. This charity fundraiser has become a popular annual fixture on the club calendar and once again we expect a big crowd of hurlers, young and old, to take on the challenging course. The pucking begins from Coole Cross at 11:30am, as teams of 3 wind their way around famed Dun Bolg and back into the village via the college road. Here is a map of the route: Poc Fada Map The event is open to all, teams of 3 are €20 and there will be refreshments along with prizes for the various categories. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t pucked a ball in years or not, this is all about having an enjoyable day in the community. All proceeds from the Poc Fada go to Marymount Hospice, a fantastic charity which we are delighted to support. So spread the word and bring a few friends. You may even loft the bridge, like this happy fella… An Poc Ghearr begins at 10.00am St Patricks Day. Meeting at College School- waddlers, toddlers, young men, women and families are all welcome.

Weekend football results

Mixed results for our 3 teams in action this weekend. On Saturday our U16 footballers lost their opening league match to a good Killeagh/St.Ita’s team in Carraig on a 2-9 to 3-3 scoreline. The lads improved throughout the game and will be looking to build on their performance for their next outing. This morning, Sunday, our young Minor footballers put in a good performance against Cobh in Carraig but were defeated on a 2-11 to 2–07 scoreline after an entertaining match. This was also their first outing of the season and the lads will be working hard on the training pitch to get their first win the next day out. Our Junior A Footballers fared better and took the points on offer in their East Cork Junior Football League clash in Cloyne this morning. Goals from Colm O’Reilly and the lively Aaron Dorgan helped Carraig to a 2-08 to 2-06 win over the hosts in perfect conditions for football. Notable performances from Oisin Crowley, Brendan Murphy in goal and the aforementioned Dorgan helped Carraig to the win. We meet the same opposition again in the first round of the championship on Sat 26th March, which will be a tougher test...
