East Cavan Gaels GAA Club – Hurling News 19th June 2017 Feile na nGael 2017.

What an incredible weekend in Carlow and Kilkenny at National Feile. Full reports and lots of pictures on our Facebook page. A few words of thanks.

Our players;What an exceptional group of boys to work with. Some aged 11 and attending their first ever Feile while some of the more experienced boys were at their fourth. No a cross word between them over the entire weekend sometimes when games were very tough. Their playing performances were incredible and we could see boys growing into young men before our eyes over the weekend. A special word for the younger lads who performed heroics against sometimes much physically bigger opponents and never once let their heads drop. Very well behaved over the entire weekend and are again a credit to our club, Cavan hurling, their families and the local community. You can be assured that these boys have a bright future on the hurling field and beyond. Well done lads.

Our host club; Naomh Bríd Hurling and Camogie Club in Leighlinbridge Co. Carlow were our hosts for the weekend. They went above and beyond what would be expected from Feile hosts ensuring the club will never forget this experience. As we said on Saturday at the presentation event taking the first steps off the bus on Friday afternoon was like walking on air. Nothing was too much trouble and no one wanted for anything. The boys were taken care of to an incredible degree by the host families and we are so thankful to them for that. Our most competitive game of the weekend was against our hosts in what was a great occasion. Even though they got knocked out at the quarter final stage a large and supportive group of Naomh Brid supporters descended on St. Johns Park, Kilkenny, home of famed O’Loughlin Gaels GAA club on Sunday to support us and the standing ovation from all of them while leaving the field will live long in the memory. From all of us at East Cavan Gaels we give most gracious thanks to our remarkable hosts in particular Catriona and Adrian whose work to ensure a great weekend was a huge success. The presentation event, the disco, the food, the food and did we mention the food!! Incredible hospitality never to be forgotten. Please call in if passing the area. It is a most beautiful part of the country with remarkably friendly people.

Our management team; To Pat and Kathryn we give immeasurable thanks for the work put in with these boys in preparation for this competition. Months and months of preparation got just reward with outstanding performances from a squad which had players of various ages and abilities working together to achieve something we never have done before, qualify for Feile Sunday. These things do not happen by chance and we are very lucky to have both as dedicated to the club as we have. Be very proud of your achievements this weekend.

Our support crew; To Jack Barry and Brendan O’Reilly who kept the boys on their toes and ready for action. It is great to have the likes of Jack, one of our senior players, come with us and give the boys the benefit of his experience. It is great to see him give time back to the club and the boys responded with great performances. To Caroline, Joan, Michelle, Des, Anthony, Michael and Miriam we also give most gracious thanks for your time, effort and patience over a very busy weekend. It is the unseen or unheralded work in the background which ensures the weekend is the success that it was.

Our travelling families; Great support from our player families as they made the journey down to Carlow. It is great for the boys to have this level of support for their hurling at home and its events like this that will drive them forward to adult hurling in the years ahead.

Our bus driver; The very capable and experienced Tony who got our crew to all events safely. A very busy weekend for him and again we are most appreciative of his experience and patience.

To everyone; If I missed out on anyone the I do apologise, but we are now officially wrecked from our endeavours! Everyone played their part in making this weekend a success and we are sure the boys have memories to last a lifetime. We will have another new crew of boys stepping up next year and they will have big boots to fill. Thanks to all our fundraising teams who ensured the boys had a great weekend with all their new gear, Training tops, hoodies, tracksuits bags etc. They really looked the part. A lot of positive words from all in Carlow, Kilkenny for our exploits, people were so very kind everywhere we went. A glorious sunny weekend which will be hard to beat.

Now it’s back to the Cavan and Monaghan leagues and Championships and we look forward to Feile 2018 which will be held in Connaught.

St. Anne’s Church: Renovations Update

The renovations to the Church and the Parish Centre have been progressing well over the past few weeks. The blockwork on the extension to the Sacristy has almost been completed and the chimney at the back of the Church which was causing dampness in the Sacristy and the Sanctuary area of the Church has been demolished. In the Parish Centre, the basement area has been stripped and new floors have been laid to accommodate a new meeting room, office and storage space. On the ground floor, the old sitting room is being converted into a meeting space and the kitchen and toilets are being re-arranged to accommodate public use. The chimneys which were allowing water to access the building have been demolished and new ones built.

Over the coming weeks work will begin on the flat roofs which are in a very poor state. At present, there is at least 2 to 3 inches of water trapped between the insulation and the concrete ceilings. Work will also begin shortly on the interior of the Sacristy and the Church.

Unfortunately, because of the nature of the works involved, and the poor condition of the interior, the Church Area Finance Committee have been advised that the Church will have to close during the summer for three to four weeks, from Monday, June 26th. This period will enable the pews to be removed and the painting, electrical and flooring works to proceed unhindered.

During this time, the Community School Board of Management have kindly given permission to use the Assembly Hall for Saturday evening and Sunday morning Masses. The Community Centre will be used for week-day Masses and in the event of Funerals, St. Anne’s Church, Killann, St. Patrick’s Church, Tierworker and St. Brigid’s Church, Tunnyduff, will be available.
