M. Donnelly All Ireland Poc Fada Final 2014

The 2014 M. Donnelly GAA All-Ireland Poc Fada finals have been rescheduled for Sunday 24th August 2014 on Annaverna Mountain, Ravensdale in Co. Louth.

The eagerly-awaited finals were due to take place on Saturday the 2nd of August, but were postponed due to the adverse weather conditions, following a course inspection.

This unique GAA sporting and cultural contest promises to be a great day of sport. Tipperary’s Cummins is the man of the moment, though, as he is looking to win a record 8th title but will have stiff competition form 2013 All Ireland Winning goalkeeper Patrick Kelly and Laois’ Eoin Reilly.

The provincial Poc Fada Champions Donal O’Brien (Mayo), Eoin Reilly (Laois), Andrew Fahy (Clare) and Ruairi Convery (Derry) and the four provincial runners-up Patrick McKillion (Tyrone), Stevie Brenner (Waterford), Nigel Daly (Galway) and Kevin Walsh (Kilkenny) will compete against Patrick Kelly (Clare), Alan Nolan (Dublin) and Stephen Clynch (Meath).

Patricia Jackman of Waterford will also be attempting to make history by winning her sixth M Donnelly Camogie Poc Fada title in a row. The decorated camogie star will, however, face strong competition from Catriona Daly (Galway), Martine McMahon (Limerick), Stephanie Carthy (Dublin), Louise Dougan (Derry), Aoibheann Murphy (Armagh) & Niamh Mackin (Louth).

The M Donnelly Under 16 All Ireland Poc Fada will see Alan Kelly (Laois), Barry Kenneally (Cork) & Donal McKernan (Antrim) compete again last year’s winner Jack Coyne (Galway) for the prestigious title.
