Sympathy

Cavan Gaels would like to extend its sympathy to the family of Sarah Doonan, Fairview on her recent death. Sarah was the mother of James Doonan who starred on Cavan Gaels’ teams for many years at all under-age levels and at senior level culminating in his captaining his club to a senior championship victory over Mullahoran in 2003. Sarah’s late husband Hughie played for Cavan Harps and Cavan Gaels and was a brother of Willie who played for Cavan Harps and Cavan Slashers and managed Cavan Gaels on his return from England.

County Minors

Hard luck to our representatives on the county minor panel, Luke Fortune, Shane Fortune and Fintan Carolan, on their defeat to Derry in the Ulster final on Sunday last. The team never recovered from a lack-lustre first half display. Things improved after the interval but Derry had a comfortable cushion and were content to defend their lead to the end. Cavan have an opportunity to learn from their tactical weaknesses and give a more consistent display commensurate with their true ability when they take on Leinster champions Kildare in the All-Ireland quarter-final. Best of luck to players and management.

Division 1A League

Our seniors had a narrow victory over visitors Lacken on Saturday last in the All-County league. The home side, who had to play for most of the second half with fourteen men, fought hard to keep in contention. With time almost up and Lacken leading by two points, Mickey Lyng made an indelible imprint on the game with a classic strike to the net leaving his side winners by the narrowest of margins. Well done to our new look team for their tenacity in adversity and to the team management.

Minor League

They proved too strong for our players and they ran out winners by 2-8 to 1-2. It was a great adventure for these players. Well done also to the management and to all those who travelled to the south east to support the team. The memories should last a long time. Thanks to all those who supported the race night and to those who fundraised in any other way for this prestigious event.

Féile Peile na nÓg

Congratulations to our under-14s who reached the semi-finals of the national Féile competition last week-end. They got off to an ideal start on Friday last against their hosts Michael Davitts with a 5-5 to 1-1 victory. In round two later that evening they were defeated by Coralstown-Kinnegad in a low-scoring game by 0-4 to 0-1! On Saturday they got back to winning ways in round three with a 3-3- to 0-1 win against Castletown. In the quarter-final they met Castleblayney Faughs and overcame them on a scoreline of 3-4 to 1-3. Their opponents in the semi-final were the Longford champions Killoe who have had an excellent recent under-age pedigree in their county. They proved too strong for our players and they ran out winners by 2-8 to 1-2. It was a great adventure for these players. Well done also to the management and to all those who travelled to the south east to support the team. The memories should last a long time. Thanks to all those who supported the race night and to those who fundraised in any other way for this prestigious event.
