Ballyheighue to host Kerry Puc Fada on June Bank Holiday weekend
A POC Fada competition will take place in the Kerry Head region of Ballyheigue on June 1, with the first puck being taken at 3pm. Clubs are requested to send one senior player and one U16 player.
This competition is encouraged by Croke Park and the Munster Council to be held in a open area such as the likes of Kerryhead mountain overlooking the Shannon and into Tralee bay that carrys a huge tourist attraction and great scenery. The competition should be enjoyable and will add a competitive edge for the players taking part to pit their striking skills against each other and to become Kerry's Poc Fada county champion who will then represent the county at the provincial finals in the Cooley Mountains in Louth on August 3.
The winner of the Kerry Championship will receive a county medal and second and third will also receive presentations. All taking part will receive a memento of the occasion.
Please send names of players who will be representing your club to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, May 24. Full details of the event will be sent to clubs closer to the competition date.
