Ulster GAA website article Here
Derry’s Ruairi Convery will return to Divis Mountain this Saturday (Saturday 4th June 2011) to attempt to win his third Ulster Poc Fada title in a row.

The Derry hurler has been a regular competitor in this event over the last six years and, having been runner up to current All Ireland Poc Fada Champion, Graham Clarke, on two occasions, he finally won his first title in 2009.

In last year’s event he was pushed all the way by Down’s Karol Keating before eventually winning out on a measure when both competitors had struck the same number of pucks over the Divis Mountain course.

Other competitors include Antrim and Cushendall ace Neill McManus, who is new to the event and in Camogie former All Star and ALL Ireland Club winning captain, Jane Adams.

Competition will be held in Senior Hurling, Senior Camogie, Under 16 Hurling and a fun Over 40’s hurling event, where Down’s Gary Savage will return to defend his win in 2010.
