Mentioned in Irish Myth & Legend, where Setanta uses his Hurley to hit the ball from Co. Louth all the way to Armagh where he is due for a feast held by the King of Ulster.
The All-Ireland Final is held in the Cooley Mountains every year to honour Setanta’s journey.
Poc Fada is the Irish version of Golf, and the object of the game is to use a hurley to hit a ball up the side of a mountain and down the other side in as few ‘pucks’ as possible.
