Orlagh Laverty wins Ulster Poc Fada

There was success for Antrim at yesterday evening’s Ulster Poc Fada when Orlagh Laverty of Loughgiel Shamrocks won the Under 16 Camogie title. Antrim champion Orlagh gave a top class display to emulate her club colleague Roisin McFadden who won the title in 2017. The event, which was once again hosted by Shane O’Neill’s in Glenarm, covered the course on Gowkstown Hill in Feystown.

The mens event was won by Ballygalget and Down star Gareth Magic Johnston who was first man off, and from his first poc of the ball it was clear he would be hard to beat. Louise Dougan of Slaughtneill and Derry retained the Senior Camogie crown while Oisin Marley of Donegal retained his Under 16 Boys title.

After the event the competitors and spectators returned to the Shane O’Neill’s clubroms where Ulster GAA vice President Ciaran McLaughlin and Ulster Camogie President Jennifer Cultra presented the awards
