Bailieborough Fianna Fáil Cumann hosts ‘Cumann na Mban’ History Lecture:

On 2nd April 1914, over 100 women gathered in Dublin to discuss the role of women in the lead-up to revolution. They became Cumann na mBan – an organisation whose role in achieving Irish independence is almost forgotten. The meeting, at Wynn’s Hotel, was presided over by Agnes O’ Farrelly.

They adopted a constitution which stated their aims were:

– To Advance the cause of Irish liberty
– To organise Irish women in the furtherance of that objective
– To assist in arming and equipping a body of Irish men for the defence of Ireland

-To form a fund for these purposes to be called the ‘Defence of Ireland Fund’.  

Bailieborough Fianna Fáil Cumann in preparation for the 1916 Celebrations are delighted to announce we are hosting an historical lecture on ‘Cumann na mBan’.  Our guest speaker for this event is Dr Mary Aluiffe, Cumann na mBan resource officer and executive member of the Women’s History Association of Ireland, UCD.  This event will be held in the Wesleyan Chapel Arts and Cultural Centre, Bailieborough on Thursday next, the 30th April at 8pm.

This event is open to everyone and your attendance would be much appreciated to this historical event.

Motor racing champion Simon McKinley (34) was a “hero and an idol” to people in the sport, his funeral ceremony was told today.

Mr McKinley’s remains were brought to the Seamus Ennis Centre in Naul village this morning for the ceremony to celebrate his life which was officiated by humanist celebrant Brian Whiteside.

His coffin was adorned with white and red roses, trophies he had won over his prestigious career and his racing helmet.

A guard of honour was provided by his friends from the world of motor racing. They had travelled from all over the country.

His widow Deirdre told mourners that Simon proposed to her in 2012 and they were married six months later.

Their son Rory arrived in 2014. “Simon relished every moment with him,” she said.

East Cavan Gaels GAA Hurling – Club News 27th April 2015

Shane Mulholland RIP

Everyone at East Cavan Gaels extend their deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Shane. In his short time with us he had a profound effect on all he met and coached in his role as Hurling Development Administrator here in Cavan. Only recently he put some of our coaches through Foundation and Level 1 hurling courses while also working with ECG boys who are part of both Cavan and South Ulster U14 and U16 squads helping them all the while to become better hurlers while he also had a significant impact on the county minor squad helping them to qualify for an Ulster final.
We cannot but only imagine the impact of his passing will have on his young wife Vanessa and 8 week old daughter Aishling so we ask that you kindly keep them in your thoughts and prayers in the coming days and weeks ahead.
All local hurling activity will be suspended until further notice.
May he rest in peace.
East Cavan Gaels Hurling Club.

On Tuesday, 10th March 2015, the Fianna Fáil Cumann held its AGM in the Bailie Hotel, Main Street, Bailieborough. In keeping with recent trends, large numbers attended the meeting. This is due to the diligent work carried out by the Cumann members which has seen its numbers swell in recent years.

On 2 April 1914, over 100 women gathered in Dublin to discuss the role of women in the lead-up to revolution. They became Cumann na mBan – an organisation whose role in achieving Irish independence is almost forgotten. The meeting, at Wynn’s Hotel, was presided over by Agnes O’Farrelly.  

They adopted a constitution which stated their aims were:

– To Advance the cause of Irish liberty
– To organise Irish women in the furtherance of that objective
– To assist in arming and equipping a body of Irish men for the defence of Ireland

-To form a fund for these purposes to be called the ‘Defence of Ireland Fund’.  

Bailieborough Fianna Fáil Cumann in preparation for the 1916 Celebrations are delighted to announce we are hosting an historical lecture on ‘Cumann na mBan’.  Our guest speaker for this event is Dr Mary Aluiffe, Cumann na mBan resource officer and executive member of the Women’s History Association of Ireland, UCD.  This event will be held in the Wesleyan Chapel Arts and Cultural Centre, Bailieborough on Thursday the 30th April at 8pm.
