Club Notes

November 8, 2018


The Seniors started off their campaign to retain the Oliver Plunkett Cup at the weekend with a trip to Breffni to play Mullahoran, but sadly it ended the same way as last year’s campaign opener, with a one point defeat by 0-11 to 0-10. A dream opening quarter saw the Stars lead 0-6 to 0-0 and everything went to plan however Mullahoran eventually got going and tightened things up and by halftime the gap was down to 0-8 to 0-5 and the warning signs were there.

The 2nd half saw Mullahoran take control of proceedings at midfield and gradually reel in Kingscourt and with 10 minutes remaining they levelled matters at 0-9 each.  While Mullahoran then pushed ahead, Kingscourt showed some spirit when Philly Tinnelly expertly slotted over the equaliser to set up a pulsating finish. However, a late Mullahoran winner could not be pegged back, with some late chances going astray.

So, one game into the championship and we are already at the knockout stage.  This weekend sees Mullahoran play Lavey  and after that we will know exactly what we need to do in our final game v Lavey on weekend of 6/7 August. However, it really is win or bust from here on in, but as mentioned we lost our Championship opener last year and recovered pretty well so we ain’t gone yet….


Best of Luck  to Joe, James, Padraig and all the players & management of the Cavan Minors in their All-Ireland Quarter Final clash with Galway in Longford at 3pm on Saturday afternoon. Hopefully a another big crowd will turn up and cheer them on as they look to reach the Semi Final and a big day out in Croke Park at the end of August.


The 16s play their final game in a disappointing season this week when they play Ballyhaise in the     U-16 Championship Shield Final.  Hopefully they can finish the season with a flourish and claim victory in the Shield Final. The 13s also had a tough week as they were well beaten by Ramor Utd


The club is delighted to announce that a new batch of club merchandise will be available directly from the club by the end of the month at little more than cost price.  The options will include replica jerseys, polo shirts, jackets, training tops and hats.  The jerseys are already up on and the other gear should be up later this week. Jerseys are a steal ranging from just €25- €35.

Sizes will range from the 8 to 80 with prices varying depending on size but as said they will practically be sold at cost price.  You can get a look at the range of products on the website, at Senior home matchs or Sunday juvenile training. Alternatively you can ring Niall on 086 8237382 or ask the various team managers for more details.


Always giving out about the Ref?  Reckon you could do a better job?  Let’s be honest, who has never thought that!! However, do we actually know the rules of the games that we love to watch and play??The official rules are now up on the club website to have a look at.  Check them out, you might actually be surprised with what you see, and perhaps go easy on the ref the next time, well maybe….




Training continues for all U-8 & U-10s for East Cavan Gaels in Bailieboro on Friday evenings. Training is from 7-8pm for at the Community School pitch. All are welcome.
