Congratulations and Well Done:

Congratulations and Well Done to East Cavan Gaels Hurling Club who are the All Ireland Champions of the John West Féile na nGael Division 8 Hurling Shield Final that took place over the weekend. A truly historic weekend as our lads landed a National Hurling title for their efforts in Sligo and Mayo this past weekend! Facing off opposition from Donegal, Sligo twice, Mayo, Down and Mayo again in the final to lift the Division 8 Shield in front of an ecstatic support in Ballyhaunis on Sunday. Friday started with a very narrow defeat to Sligo club Castleconnor in a very exciting game. A defeat to a strong St. Eunans from Letterkenny, who eventually went on to the Cup final, was no disgrace. The lads dusted themselves down and on Saturday began by defeating host club Ben Bulben Gaels to finish third in the group. Off to Connaught Centre of Excellence in Ballyhaunis to face off against Beal Atha Bhearraigh from Mayo for a place in the semi-final. A dominant 5-11 to 1-02 win got them to Sunday morning in Tooreen in Mayo to face Down club St Peters Warrenpoint. In a gripping encounter the lads held out by a point 1-04 to 1-03 to advance to the Shield final for the second successive year. This time we played our old but good friends from Caiseal Gaels in Mayo, whom we hosted at National Feile in 2015 in Bailieborough. The first half started well but a couple of soft goals left a bit of doubt in the minds at half time. In fairness to the lads they kicked on considerably in the second half with all sectors of the field contributing to a stirring yet decisive win. Joyous scenes as Diarmuid and Nathan received the Shield from GAA President Jack Horan.

We must give many thanks to number of individuals and groups who made this success possible. To Kathryn and Pat, the Feile management team who delivered in what was a challenging week off the field in the run up to the competition. To Kathryn for all her administrative work in the lead up to Feile. To Colin and Ben who prepared the U13s in the squad to a great standard. To Bridie Rahill for her brilliant transport all over the West of Ireland for the whole weekend. To Nixy’s Bar in Bailieborough for the fine spread at short notice to welcome home the boys. To the cavalcade and supporters who turned out in large numbers to welcome the lads home. To the host families in Sligo and the host Club Ben Bulben Gaels for the excellent hospitality over the entire weekend. To our player families who travelled West in large numbers and were vociferous in their unflinching support for the lads. To all our sponsors and supporters especially McGuirk Engineering who kindly sponsored the new training tops for the boys. And finally to the lads themselves who can now call themselves All Ireland Champions. Well done from us all in the club.

The Challenge event starts with a 5k run, a 1k Kayak and finishes with a 16k cycle.

There is one change to the junior event format. This year it will start with a short Kayak, followed by a 4 k run on a flat circuit and will conclude with a 16 k cycle on a mainly flat course.

All details are on the website. www.cavankayakarun.com. Online registration is also available from the website. There is a free T Shirt with all entries.

The Cavan Kayakarun run is a unique event in this part of the county. Participants in the past have commented on the fun they’ve had taking part in the event and thus the reason why so many continue to return to it year after year. Safety both on road and the water is paramount to the organizers and all routes, junctions and transition areas are well marshaled.

So make a date for a great day’s fun, exercise and competition on Saturday August 6th. Do it as an individual or maybe even better still as part of a two or three person team.

And if you can, remain on for the post Kayakarun Party on Saturday night in Gallonray House. There will be music and celebration. Meet and make new friends in the sporting and adventure race world.  Everyone’s a winner who takes part. The Cavan Kayakarun is all about the joy of entering. Be part of it this year.

There is a team for you regardless of your age or ability. No previous hurling experience is required and we provide the equipment while you “give it a go!” Some of the greatest ever hurlers started late, Sean Og O’Halpin was 14 years old before he started playing hurling and Henry Shefflin, probably the greatest ever hurler, started out as a goalie! If you are interested in hurling then we have a team for you. Come to one of our registration nights and speak to members of the coaching team and see if hurling could be the game for you.

Registration nights; We will register all our present and new hurlers in two venues as follows; Kingscourt Community Centre Thursday January 28th from 6.45 for all from the Kingscourt area Under 6, Under 8 and Under 10.

Minor; Our minors will now take part in the 2015 Championship Final on Sunday 17th January on the 3G at Breffni Park at 2.30 v our friends from Cootehill. This is our very first final at minor and follows on from our Under 16s participating in their first ever final also. All support very welcome.

Presentation night; The most famous trophy in hurling, the Liam McCarthy Cup will make a welcome return to East Cavan Gaels on Sunday, January 17th at 5.30pm in The Bailie Hotel, Bailieborough, as we host our presentation evening for 2015s hurling activity.
