Cavan camogie star Emma Mulvaney is the 2023 Ulster Poc Fada Senior Champion. The final was held in Glenarm on Tuesday evening.
Challenging weather conditions had initially threatened the event, but fortunately the clouds cleared, and 26 competitors and over a hundred spectators made their way onto the mountain for the eagerly-anticipated contest. The competition featured four categories: Senior and U16 Hurling, and Senior and U16 Camogie.
In the Senior Ladies category, Emma Mulvaney from Castletara in Cavan secured the title, completing the shortened course in 22 pocs and 31 yards, narrowly beating Danielle McCourt from Ballyholland, Down, by just four yards.
Tiarná Kelly from the Baile na Scrine club in Derry successfully defended her Under 16 Camogie title from last year, finishing the course in 21 pocs and seven yards, four pocs clear of her competition.
Following the event, all participants and spectators were invited back to the Shane Uí Neill clubrooms for refreshments and the presentation of awards. Each of the four winners received an Ulster Medal and a £50 O’Neill’s voucher sponsored by Ulster GAA & Ulster Camogie.
Ulster Vice Chair, and Chairperson of the Hurling Committee, Michael Geoghegan expressed gratitude to Terence Mulvenna and Shane Uí Neill GAC for their hospitality and the fantastic venue.
