A new national committee has been appointed to organise this year's Poc Fada. The committee has asked each county to organise its own Poc Fada county competition. The County champion will then represent his county in the provincial final on July 13th, with the winner of that competition going to Cooley Mountains for the All-Ireland final on August 3rd 2013.
The National Poc Fada Committee have also announced that the winners of the Provincial Senior Men's Poc Fada Competitions for 2013 will receive a trip on the TodayFM Topflight Ski Trip 2014 (Flights & 3 nights' Accommodation) where they will take part in the annual Topflight Poc Fada Competition on the ski slopes.
In response to a further the request of An Poc Fada National Committee to hold the event in a format that would be inkeeping with the format of the national competition, Coiste Chontae Chorcaí now intend to hold a Poc Fada competition for adult hurlers at Pilmore, Youghal, Co Cork on Friday night May 24th at 7.30pm next. Coiste Oiliuna will also be holding an underage Poc Fada Competition at 6.30pm on the same evening.
