Club Notes – Oct 27th 2014

Division 1A 

Our seniors, fresh from last week’s victory against Ballinagh in the senior league, had an away encounter with Lacken on Sunday last. This was a game dominated by a strong wind. High scoring was the order of the day with Cavan Gaels emerging winners by seven points having been behind by seven at half time. As a result of these two victories we have secured a semi-final spot. Well done to all concerned.

Ulster Club 

Our seniors have an away game against the Derry champions Robert Emmetts GAC  Slaughtneil in the Ulster club championship on Sunday November 9.

Patsy Bradley, current Slaughtneil midfielder,  played at midfield for his club in 1999 and his direct opponent that day was Dominic Reilly, current Cavan Gaels midfielder.Best of luck to our players and management as they prepare for their Ulster campaign.

Club Notes – Oct 20th 2014

Division 1A 

Our seniors, fresh from their county final championship victory, defeated Ballinagh in their league clash on Saturday evening last in Templeport. Although both sides were short some regulars, they served up an entertaining game. Ballinagh, despite having the  assistance of a very strong wind in the first half, were behind by one point at half time thanks to a Declan Meehan goal. A Paul O Connor goal early in the second half gave the Gaels some breathing space. Ballinagh did rally and converted a penalty but it was the Gaels who won by a seven point margin 3-12 to 1-11.

Club Notes – Oct 13th 2014

Senior Championship 

Congratulations to our seniors on winning the championship in thrilling style in Bréifne Park on Sunday last. There was never much between the teams in a game which featured all that is good in gaelic football. Kingscourt, despite being a man down, made us fight all the way. This senior victory was our nineth in fourteen years and we were lining out in a senior final for the fifteenth time in seventeen years. There were joyous scenes when joint captains Eamonn Reilly and Martin Dunne lifted the Oliver Plunkett Cup. Well done to all the players, mentors, management and other helpers for their unstinting work with the senior panel this year. This victory was very welcome after the disappointment of last year’s final. Comhghairdeas.

Under-16 Girls 

Well done to our under-16 girls who have battled their way to the final by defeating Mountnugent and Lavey. The semi-final against Lavey on Sunday last in Bréifne Park was well contested with our girls snatching victory with a last minute goal. Best of luck to them in the final.

Croke Park U-12 Games 

Congratulations to Jack Tully and Jack Elliott who took part in a series of under-12 games in Croke Park on Saturday last. This was a fantastic opportunity for under-12 players from many counties to play in the premier gaelic games stadium. Thanks to Cavan Games Development for their assistance with the event.

Sympathy 

Our sympathy is extended to the family of John Teevan who passed away recently. The late John was closely associated with Cavan Gaels and was a club sponsor for many years. He sponsored club jerseys when he was working in the Crúiscín Lán. Ar dheis lámh Dé go raibh a anam uasal.

Health and Wellbeing Seminar 

Cavan Gaels club was represented at the Health and Wellbeing Seminar in the Hotel Kilmore recently. Guest speakers were Oisín McConville, former All-Ireland winner with Armagh and Crossmaglen. Oisín discussed his experiences in overcoming his gambling addiction and his work around the country promoting health and wellbeing. Susan Kenny, from the National Office for Suicide Prevention(NOSP), is currently assisting the NOSP in devising a new national policy aimed at reducing the incidence of suicide in Ireland. She outlined, in particular, how the GAA can contribute to this important work. She emphasised the importance of gaelic games and other sports as a means of promoting positive mental health in its participants. Colin Regan, former Leitrim footballer and the GAA’s Community and Health Manager, looked at how coaches, officers, players and parents can contribute to a culture that fosters positive experiences in clubs. This, he argues, will result not just in better, more rounded players but healthier people as well. The onus now is on all sports clubs to promote health and wellbeing and to look out for any signs that a player needs help in this crucial area. Bímis ar faire.

Senior Championship 

Well done to our seniors who had a facile victory over Cuchulainns in the championship semi-final on Saturday night last in Kingspan Bréifne Park. Scores were at a premium in the first half but the Gaels forged ahead in the third quarter and coasted to victory. We now meet in the final the winners of the Kingscourt-Ballinagh clash which takes place next weekend. In a quarter-final encounter played at the weekend, Ballinagh battled back well after conceding two early goals to Mullahoran to register a five-point victory. Well done to our players and management. 

Under-8s/Under-10s 

Our under-8s and under-10s paid a visit to Cornafean on Saturday morning last and played a series of games. Thanks to the Cornafean club for their hospitality. Míle buíochas.

Under-14

John Fee Day 

Our annual John Fee Day took place in Terry Coyle Park recently. A series of games took place for our under-8, under-10 and under-12 boys and for our under-12 girls. Stalwart Cavan Gaels supporter Mick McCarthy presented the Brother Cyril Plaque for under-8 boys to Bobbie Hanley. The John Fee Memorial Cup for under-10 boys was presented to Favor Shehu by Kathleen Fee. Terence (Doc) Smith presented the Hughie Smith Memorial Cup for the under-12 boys, in memory of his father, to Lucas McDermott, and the Ruairí Dunne Memorial Cup for the under-12 girls was presented by Fergal Dunne, brother of Ruairí, to Aiveen Sexton. All the participants in the games received a specially inscribed medal. The medals were presented by various members of the Cavan Gaels senior football team. There were many other activities throughout the morning- three-legged races, rounders, egg and spoon races, face painting. The cake sale as usual proved to be very popular and those in charge of the barbecue were kept busy! Brisk business was done also at the merchandise stand. Thanks to all who brought items for the cake sale, to those who organised and refereed the games, to those who co-ordinated the face painting, to those who were at the burger stand and the cake sale stall. Thanks to Mark Leddy in particular who co-ordinated the day’s activities. This day has become a very important occasion in the club calendar. Ní neart go cur le chéile.

Club Notes – Sept 22nd 2014

Senior Championship

 Well done to our seniors who had a convincing quarter-final victory over Lacken in the championship replay on Friday night last. Two goals before half time eased us ahead and gave us the platform for ultimate victory. In the open semi-final draw, we have been drawn against Cuchullains again. Best of luck to all concerned.

Well done to our under-10s who like the under-8s won the Drumlane tournament recently.

Club Notes – Sept 1st 2014

Senior Championship 

Our seniors have reached the senior football championship quarter-final following their victory over Cuchullains in Virginia on Saturday last. After leading narrowly at half time our players performed well in the second half, stretched their lead and ran out deserving winners.  Well done to all concerned. Comhghairdeas. 

Minor Championship

Hard luck to our minors who were defeated by Bailieboro in their championship encounter in Terry Coyle Park on Tuesday evening last. This was a game where Bailieboro’s ability to convert their possession into scores was the deciding factor. We had much of the play throughout the game but an obsession with trying to score goals when points were on offer rendered our task unnecessarily more difficult. Hopefully our youthful team will have learned valuable lessons from this game. Well done to our players, the vast majority of whom are under-age for minor football next year. 

Under-8s/Under-10s 

Our under-8s and under-10s travelled to Arvagh on Saturday last for a series of games. Both sides gave an impressive display of gaelic football skills. Well done.

Under-14 

Best of luck to our under-14s who meet Kingscourt in the first round of the championship.

John Fee Day 

Our annual John Fee Day will take place in Terry Coyle Park on Saturday 20 September. There will be many underage games for boys and girls as well as lots of fun activities for young and old.

Sympathy 

Our sympathy is extended to Isabella Corrigan, wife of the late Frank Corrigan, and to his son and daughters. In his latter years the late Frank became an avid supporter of Cavan Gaels. Despite ill-health he insisted on attending as many Cavan Gaels matches as possible.  He and Mick McCarthy sat beside each other on special seats at those matches following the fortunes of the club.

Our seniors have been drawn against Cuchullains in the next round of the senior championship. This game will take place on Saturday next in Virginia at 6pm. Best of luck to them. Please support.

Sports’ Capital Grant

Cavan Gaels has been awarded €110.000 in the latest Sports’ Capital Grant scheme. We thank all those who in any way contributed to the application or helped in any way to expedite the granting of this money. Thanks to all those who have already joined the Friends of Cavan Gaels and in doing so have made a very important contribution to our club’s development plans. We would encourage those members, at home and abroad, who have not joined so far, to consider joining the Friends of Cavan Gaels.

We are glad to report that work has commenced on this project.

Minor Championship

Hard luck to our minors who were very narrowly defeated by Naomh Bríd (Drumalee/Redhills/Butlersbridge) on Tuesday last in Drumalee in a very entertaining and sporting game of the highest standard. We got off to a flying start and raced into a four point lead. By half time scores were even. The second half was well contested with the lead changing hands several times. With full time approaching the Naomh Bríd goalkeeper converted a 45 to guarantee victory for his side. Our next game in the competition sees us pitted against Bailieboro. Well done to our players, the vast majority of whom are under-age for minor football next year. 

All-Ireland Junior Final 

Well done to Paul O Connor and Niall Smith who lined out for Cavan in the All-Ireland junior final victory against Kerry in Portlaoise on Saturday last. Cavan’s only previous victory in this competition was in 1927 when they defeated Kildare 0-7 to 1-3 in Bréifne Park. That victorious team included Cavan Slashers players Tom Crowe, Louis Mallon and Andy Conlon. 

Sympathy 

Our sympathy is extended to Isabella Corrigan, wife of the late Frank Corrigan, and to his son and daughters. In his latter years the late Frank became an avid supporter of Cavan Gaels. Despite ill-health he insisted on attending as many Cavan Gaels matches as possible.  He and Mick McCarthy sat beside each other on special seats at those matches following the fortunes of the club.

Congratulations 

Congratulations to Mark Reilly and his wife Ciara Fay who were married recently. Mark was a playing member of Cavan Gaels for many years.

Camogie Under-age Blitz 

Cavan Gaels held an under-age camogie blitz on Thursday 7 August in Terry Coyle Park. This was a very encouraging and enjoyable occasion. Congratulations to all the players and coaches who took part and to those who organised it. Comhghairdeas.

Thanks to all those who have helped in any way with the launch of the Cavan Gaels Tornadoes. A particular word of thanks to all the coaches who turned up at the launch and who have continued to do so on Saturday mornings from 11.00-12 noon. Thanks also to all the parents who continue to attend and offer their help. New boys and girls always welcome.
