Offaly brothers finish first and second in All Ireland Poc Fada Final

The Kiely brothers in action today

Offaly brothers Cillian and Cathal Kiely have finished first and second in the M Donnelly All Ireland Poc Fada Final in the Cooley mountains on Saturday.

There was very little to chose between the big hitting Kilcormac/Killoughey siblings but it was defending champion Cillian who edged out his brother to retain the title. 

Cillian was in front throughout while Cathal was also ahead of the rest of the field in a clear second place. It is a phenomenal one-two for the brothers and the pair have the potential to dominate the Poc Fada for many years to come.
