Jackman belatedly crowned Camogie Poc Fada Champion

By Cóilín Duffy

Waterford's Patricia Jackman has been belatedly crowned M. Donnelly All-Ireland Senior Camogie Poc Fada champion tonight.

The Gaultier clubwoman was confirmed as the 2015 winner, 33 hours after completing the course, after clarity had to be sought by the Camogie Association in relation to the final score.

Initial reports suggested that Jackman had taken honours, on a score of 27 pucks and 34 metres, with Catriona finishing in 27 pucks and 32 metres.

However, Jackman's score was posted as 28 pucks and 34 metres, thus leading to Catriona believing she had claimed a first-ever title.

Clarification was sought with the referee involved, and it has been confirmed that Jackman's score of 27 pucks and 34 meters stands, meaning she had two metres to spare over Daly at the finish.

It's the first time since the Camogie All-Ireland Poc Fada began in 2004 that a winner has not been crowned on the day of the competition.

Jackman's latest title means that she has now gone unbeaten in the competition since 2009, picking up a record seven titles in a row.

Meanwhile, Ulster champion Catherine McGourty from Down finished the course in third place, 29pocs 6m. Clare's Aisling Corbett came fourth with 29 pocs 4m, while Dublin star, Elaine Gallery completed the course in 31 pocs 39m, with Laura Dunne of Laois on 34 pocs 9 metres.
