All Ireland Poc Fada 2020 Date Confirmed
MD Sports myclubshop.ie All-Ireland Poc Fada Finals Confirmed For
SATURDAY 5th SEPTEMBER 2020
The National Executive of Poc Fada na hÉireann and MD Sports are delighted to confirm that the 2020 MD Sports myclubshop.ie All-Ireland Poc Fada finals will take place on the Cooley Mountains on Saturday 5th September. Covid19 restrictions will apply.
The 2020 MD Sports myclubshop.ie All-Ireland Poc Fada final is a very special event in so many ways.
• First it is the 60th anniversary of the very first Poc Fada which was won by Damian Callan.
• Second 2020 is the 25th year of continuous sponsorship by Martin Donnelly and his MD Sports myclubshop.ie group.
• Thirdly, the MD Sports myclubshop.ie All-Ireland Poc Fada final is the first Senior GAA or Camogie national final to be held during 2020, all be it with restrictions owing to COVID19.
To ensure the 2020 MD Sports myclubshop.ie All-Ireland Poc Fada final can be held a number of issues have needed to be confirmed and unfortunately some vital changes to protect the health and well being of our players, officials, organisers and supporters have been necessary to implement.
1. There will be NO Under 16 Poc Fada events of any kind. This means no U16 County, Provincial or All-Ireland Poc Fada’s will be held in 2020. These competitions will return in 2021.
2. There will be NO Senior Poc Fada events at County or Provincial level, but these will return in 2021.
The National Executive of Poc Fada na hÉireann and MD Sports deeply regret the need for these radical changes to the 2020 Poc Fada’s but player, officials, organisers and supporter health and well-being has been and always will be the only concern in the running of any Poc Fada competition.
The National Executive of Poc Fada na hÉireann, MD Sports and the local organising committee are currently in the process of inviting the cream of Senior Hurling and Camogie players from all over the Country and will soon be in a position to release the list of players for this year’s events. So please check back with us for updates.
