1947 All -Ireland Remembered: Just a memory, local man Kevin Carolan wants everyone to know it’s the 75th year anniversary from Cavan won that great All-Ireland final of 1947 in the Polo Grounds in New York, this week, Kevin recalls all those great Cavan footballers in Bailieborough on the day Phil “the Gunner” Brady’s funeral went through the town. They all came back to former Cavan star, Donal Kelly’s House, where tea and sandwiches were served, great memories. So it’s 70 years from when Cavan last won the All-Ireland in 1952. Kevin’s mother in law Peggy, recalls the ’47 All-Ireland so well, that she often names the Cavan panel of that era, to his two girls all of which creates more great memories.

Launching at 7pm on Culture Night, this Friday evening, September 23rd 2022 and everyone is welcome.
The inspiration for this year’s exhibition has been drawn from books and more specifically page 10, line 5 from the artists selected book.
The artwork may reflect the theme of the book or just one word from the line, which has then been interpreted in the artist’s own creative and unique style.
The final result is a diverse exhibition.
Words offer an interesting starting point to create a piece of art so find page 10, line 5 in your favourite book and maybe you will be inspired to create your own piece of art.
