McBride is King of the Mountain
Divis Mountain came alive with hurlers and Camogs on the longest day of the year (Friday 21st June 2013) for O’Neills Ulster Poc Fada. Sean McBride from County Derry was crowned king of the mountain, while Donal Mc Kernan from County Antrim lifted the U16 Hurling Poc Fada title and Catriona McCrickard and Amy Freer from County Down won Ulster Senior Camogie Poc Fada title and U16 Camogie Poc Fada.
Speaking from Divis Mountain Ulster GAA President Martin McAviney said, “The O’Neills Ulster Poc Fada continues to get bigger and better every year. It’s a very popular date in the calendar for competitors and supporters alike on the longest day of the year, set against amazing views of Belfast City and views as far as County Derry.
“I congratulate all our competitors who have represented their counties with distinction and I wish Sean McBride from Derry, our runner up, Patrick McKillion from Tyrone and Donal Mc Kernan from Antrim every success as they now progresses to represent Ulster at the All Ireland Poc Fada later this summer.”
