East Cavan Gaels: Hurling News: IMPORTANT EXCITING NEWS!!
 2019 will see us celebrate 10 years of local hurling with East Cavan Gaels Hurling Club. We are sure you will agree that the regional model which we implemented has been a tremendous success so far in so far that boys from the region, and now men also, have their own hurling teams for which to play for. To further our development and to continue the journey to the next phase we have decided, in conjunction with Cavan County Board, to fully affiliate as an Official GAA Hurling Club. It is the next logical step in this club’s development. We have proven over the last 10 years that there is a healthy appetite for hurling in the East Cavan area and that players are willing to join with us. This is a very big and brave step to take but it could not have happened without your continued support. We have in place a transitional committee in place from which to start the next phase but we will need your input into how we move forward as an Official Club. To that end we will have a meeting for all our interested parties this coming Thursday in the Bailie Hotel, Bailieborough at 9pm upstairs. We would really appreciate it it if you could give us an hour of your time to hear what you have to say about how we begin the next ten years. This is truly an historic time for hurling and we hope you continue to be a part of this new very exciting part of our development. 9pm Thursday 21st March in the Bailie. We look forward to seeing you there. Mise le meas, Kathryn O’Flynn, Runai, East Cavan Gaels Hurling Club.

West Ham manager, Matt Beard said after the game, “I’m really pleased for Leanne. She had her injury problems over the last few months so for her to get the start today was terrific, and she’s taken her chance.” Well done Leanne and hoping that the rest of the season goes well for you.
