[ # ] M Donnelly Poc Fada 2008 Preview
July 30th, 2008

It’s time for the Poc Fada in the Cooley mountains again. It’s on this Saturday, August 2nd and looks to have a great line up of players to do battle. There’s a nice big .

This year they have Brendan Cummins the reigning champ and record holder, Davy Fitzgerald, Damien Fitzhenry and others including a guy from Milwaukee in USA, Dan McAuliffe. Great to see an American over to have a try in such a famous old competition.

You imagine that Cummins will be the favourite given that he’s won 3 of the last 4 and that he has the record. Although no doubt Davy will be all out to get one up on Tipp before their All Ireland semi final clash!
