Monaghan GAA star Shane Duffy wrote his name into the history books this weekend when he claimed the 2011 MBNA Kick Fada title.

Paul Hearty from Crossmaglen Rangers in Armagh and Paul Flood from Maynooth in Kildare came second and third respectively with kicks of 60m countback.

The Ladies title was claimed by Irene Munnelly from St. Ultan’s in Meath with a kick of 37m. The 2011 MBNA Kick Fada competition took place on Saturday 10th September in Bray Emmets GAA Club, Co Wicklow.

The MBNA Kick Fada determines who is the longest and most accurate kicker of a Gaelic football in Ireland. Competitors must kick the ball over the bar through specific competition goalposts twice the width of conventional goal sizes.
