Carraig na bhFear GAA
Tuesday 17th March 11:30am
Our Annual Poc Fada takes place once again on St. Patricks Day, 17th March at 11:30am. 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: https://goo.gl/maps/1I5QE
The event is open to all, teams of 3 are €20 and there will be refreshments provided in Carrig House at the finish line, 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.
