Kilcormac/Killoughey pair qualify for All Ireland Poc Fada final thumbnailJane Lowry of Kilcormac Killoughey won the Leinster u16 Long Poc last Saturday in Wicklow.

Kilcormac/Killoughey will have two representatives in the All Ireland Poc Fada final in the Cooley Mountains on August Bank Holiday weekend with both Cillian Kiely and Jane Lowry coming through their respective Leinster grades at the weekend.
The Leinster finals were held in the Sugarloaf Mountains in Wicklow and it was Jane Lowry who took pride of place by winning the Leinster U16 Camogie poc fada championship beating stiff competition from the rest of the province to land the title.
An up and coming camogie player for club and County, Lowry carried on her form from winning the Offaly section and came out on top.
Cillian Kiely has also made it through to the All Ireland final by coming second in the Senior mens division. He finished second to Westmeath's Brian Connaughton but still qualifies for the All Ireland final.
Kiely is now stranger to Poc Fada circles having won the U16 All Ireland twice in the past. He will be hopeful that after coming through tough competition in Offaly and Leinster that he can do well in County Louth on the August bank holiday weekend.
