All-Ireland Cic Fada Championship

All-Ireland Cic Fada Championship

The All-Ireland Cic Fada Championship is an annual tournament testing the skills of Ireland's best Gaelic footballers. "Cic Fada" is Irish for "long kick". The "Cic Fada" is sponsored by MBNA.

The tournament (first played in 2000) is held every year at Bray Emmets GAA club, County Wicklow. About 21 men and 7 women compete. Each take shots (kicking from hands, off the ground or a drop-kick) from a variety of distances. Whoever can score a point from the furthest distance is the winner, with separate sections for men and women and "masters" (men aged 40+).
