Please pass this information onto interested parties in your club. Please note that Entrants are asked to bring a marker with them on the day. Markers will be requested to act for the other competitors. 

This year the Poc Fada is following a different format in that the county & provincial competitions are to replicate in some format the All-lreland competition that is held in the Cooley Mountains every August.

The site in Pallasgreen has been chosen and we would like to thank Ger O' Connell and Jim McCormack, Pallasgreen GAA for their assistance.

Participants are also asked to wear their club jersey as photo's will be taken of all participants and posted on the websites. Participants are asked as well to bring an assistant with them to mark the scores. Assistants will be assigned to a different participant than the one they came with.

People travelling to support the long puck are advised that the terrain is Hilly and underfoot conditions may be uneven at times. They are advised to bring suitable footwear and in the event of the weather changing, suitable clothing. Supporters may travel the course at a safe distance to the competitors to shout them on. The overall length of the course is 2Km approx. This is a very scenic area of Limerick with fabulous views of the surrounding countryside.

All participants must register with me by next Thursday Next June 12th.

If you have any enquiries please contact me.



Is Mise,
