The Seniors and Juniors kept up their winning ways with a double victory over Belturbet on Saturday evening. Despite a shaky start the lads recovered from an early deficit to win 1-18 to 2-9.  The Juniors also put in an impressive show with a 2-13 to 0-3 victory.

Next up for the Seniors is their Championship opener on Sunday evening at 8pm v Mullahoran in Kingspan Breffni Park. The Juniors next match is also their Championship opener  which is away to Lacken, but that’s not until Wed 10th August.


A huge congratulations to Joe, James, Padraig and all the players & management of the Cavan Minors on their thrilling Ulster Final victory on Sunday. Despite starting the second half trailing against the hot favourites and playing against the conditions they never gave up and showed a great attitude in overcoming all the odds to register the county’s first Minor title since 1974.

Well Done to all involved and hopefully another big crowd will turn up for the All-Ireland Quarter Final against Galway over the Bank Holiday weekend.


The 16s season came to a disappointing end last week when O’Raghallaigh Gaels (Kingscourt/Shercock) were beaten 1-12 to 1-10 (AET) by St. Killians down the Park (Cuchullainns/Killinkere) in the Division Two Championship Quarter Final last Tuesday evening.

The 13s also had a tough week as they were beaten 5-11 to 2-9 at home to Cavan Gaels on Thursday evening. Again, I’ve no fixtures for the 13s so can’t tell you when they are next out.

The 10s had a blitz down the Park on Saturday morning and we will hopefully have pictures from that up on the website later in the week.
