Poc Fada, Poc Ghearr and Cake Sale on the menu for St. Patricks festivities

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. Finishes at Community Centre for refreshments. All welcome and looking forward to a fun morning . This is a special event with young children in mind, who may not be old enough to complete the main event later in the morning. Last year a number of future stars took their first pocs for Carraig at this event and it promises to be a great family event once again. All donations received will be donated to Marymount Hospice. Your support for this event is appreciated.
