Poc Fáda is the Irish for the Long puck and it's concept originates in the Irish legend of “Táin Bó Cuailgne” when Cúchulainn set out from his home to the King's court at Emain Macha hitting his sliotar before him and running ahead to catch it.
It is a very popular sport in the HSE Community Games every year with Niall Quinn being an unlikely participant a few years back!
