The Mighty River Suir Poc Fada 2016 is a fundraiser in aid of Waterford Marine Search and Rescue and Pieta House South East.
The challenge is for the competitors to try and puc a sliotar with a hurley over the mighty river Suir from a platform based in the Merchants Quay car park over the river Suir to the North Wharf, a distance of approximately 150 meters.
We are hoping that all the hurling and camogie clubs in Waterford and Kilkenny turn out over the weekend to support this great event.
We are hoping also to have the Waterford and Kilkenny Senior hurling teams joining us on one of the days to see which team can complete the challenge and take the title of champion of the MIGHT RIVER SUIR PUC FADA 2016, as well as meeting some great people and spreading the word
IT’S OK NOT TO BE OK and help to try and beat the stigma around suicide and mental health.
Maurice Shanahan and John Mullane have committed to supporting this great event.
Venue: Merchants Quay car park
Dates: 17th and 18th September 2016.
Time: 10 am untill 6pm each day
Price: €2 per sliotar or 3 for €5
Music and prizes on the day
A platform will be erected by Mullally scaffolding in the Merchants Quay car park (behind the Bus Station)
It will be the same height as the glass wall where you will be able to try your best to hit a sliotar across the mighty river Suir.
We will also have floating marks in the water for competitors to try and hit a sliotar into and a close one for the little people.
We will have a table set up at the platform where you can purchase you sliotar , we will also provide hurley’s on the day or bring your own but you must use the Mighty river Suir poc fada sliotars only.
Waterford Marine Search and Rescue will have a boat on the water at all times for safety cover and to recover the sliotars from the water.
We will have stewards in the car park looking after the public at all times.
