This was the record the Ballybacon grange man wanted.

The Ballybacon Grange man won his record 8th All-Ireland Poc Fada Award at the rearranged 2014 M. Donnelly GAA event on Saturday.

Cummins hit top form once again with 52 pucks and 63 metres, while Derry’s Ruairi Convery came second with 57 pucks, 75 metres. Reilly took third place with 57 pucks, 30 metres.

Conditions were absolutely perfect for this unique GAA sporting and cultural contest and Cummins was thrilled to win again.

“It’s a record I’d wanted to capture but it was a very competitive event,” Cummins admitted.

“I knew the competition would be very stiff and I had prepared for that,” the former custodian said.
