On Wednesday morning last, storm Ali lashed the country with strong winds and rain. Trees and branches were strewn across many of the approach roads to the town, but in most cases, Cavan County Council were quickly on the scene to remove the blockages, thus minimising traffic delays. A partly constructed roof on Lower Main Street was blown down, slates were removed from many houses, a tree was blown down onto the road opposite Drumbannon and a flying trampoline was spotted on the Cavan Road. Thankfully nobody was injured but people are still advised to be cautious as there may be some broken branches that are yet to fall.

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.

Cavan Kayakarun

It’s time once again for the 7th edition of the Cavan Kayakarun Adventure Race. This year’s event takes place on Saturday 6th of August, at Gallonray House, Maudabawn, Cootehill.

The Junior event for U12-14, U 14-U16 and U 16 –U18 starts at 12 noon

The CKR XL Challenge and the CKR Challenge commence at 1.00pm.

The format for this year remains the same. The XL Challenge starts with a 5k run, followed by a 2k kayak, and then a cross-country run and concludes with a 52 k cycle.

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.
