Cavan GG News

Post  Jayo Cluxton on Sun Feb 07, 2010 11:41 pm

After a long period of deliberation at GTHQ and the careful analysis of a number of candidates Cavan have been announced as the GAATipster Offical Team for 2010. We had considered Carlow - but the jerseys were too much. Leitrim were in the running - until today. Waterford were also in the mix but nobody knows where Fraher Field is.

So we stumped for Cavan! Basically what is means is that Cavan becomes our second favourite team for 2010. We will support them, look for their results, hoover up inside info and defend them in pubs the length and breadth of the country.

They were easy to pick really. A county with unbelievable tradition that has fallen by the wayside - until now. We will help Cavan back to the top. We will open people's minds to the Breffni. No more will people think of meanness and potholes when they hear Cavan mentioned. We will tell them of the legend of Cavan. The great players, the Ulster titles, the All Irelands and Larry Reilly!!

We will organise an outing to a Cavan game this year. This thead is devoted to Cavan football team 2010. All news, gossip, results, reports and stories regarding Cavan are welcome here!

Breffni abĂș!

I will probably take latecomers on lowest score from week 2 if you want to participate MMM. But I warn you - Loyal is on fire!

Big test next week for the boys, they have become quite adept at pulling off shock results in the past but have never been able to build on it. Johnston's Injury all of a sudden looks like a blessing in disguise (Cut to scene: Breffni next Saturday Cavan 0-1 Antrim 2-20, Jonsmith furiously eating his words)

Ok so we are playing Fermanagh on 12th June in the Champo. A Saturday evening in Kingspan Breffni awaits with a few large bottles in the town first and a run through our repertoire of Cavan ditties. So do we run a tip to this one or will we wait til the semi v Derry/Armagh/Monaghan on 27th June?

ps Jonsmith or Dougal - can ye get a bit of sponsorship for our supporters club off Mr Quinn? Nothing extravagant - maybe a minibus, a meal in the Cavan Crystal and a free bar would be fine.

Tche.. Why would we wait til June to support our team?! Don't we have a perfectly good match next Saturday in Breffni! Switch the Large bottle for a pint of the black stuff (it's still wintery out there) and the job's a good'n. Im sure patrique will be down too.
As a Teemore man I don't think Mr. Quinn will be sponsoring a Cavan fan's trip anytime soon! Suspect

That's it, i've just retired Down as my Second team for the 2010 season and promoted Cavan, sure why not when the little maestro Eamon Coleman was down there coaching before he got ill?

See you all at Breffni folks, will Jon or Dougal be buying the first round or will ye be sticking to stereotypes?

If by "buying the first round" You mean handing you a bottle of Asda beer out of the boot of the Jalopi then yes, yes I will. If you want Nuts or Crisps we can make a trip to Dunnes beforehand.

Thats some training pitch they have at the back of Breffni
New all weather job - The pitch itself looks wider then Croker.
Some sugar daddy somewhere still has a few shillings in these recessionary times

Jayo i think Mr. Murtagh/Mr Elliott rather than Mr Quinn would be the appropriate multi-Millionaires to contact.
Would also have thought that Mr Quinn (notwithstanding his county allegiances) would be highly unlikely to provide funding for a meal in a competitors hotel.
And Free bar in Cavan would be an event that would be costly in terms of crowd control.

Maybe your bus could stop off in Virgina/Kilenkere/BallyJduff or somewhere in east cavan.
It would serve as acclimatisation as about 75% of the residents are in fact semi retired Dublin taxi Drivers. They all retired to the country when they were able to sell the Dublin 3 bed for seven figures. However the Meath people would'nt give them planning permission so they all moved just across the Meath Cavan Border.

Jonsmith and Dougal will be the disciples who will guide us on our pilgrimage to the Breffni. It is fitting that a GAA website respects tradition, honours history and educates recent converts as to what made the organisation the national icon that it is today. From is transient, class is permanent. Thumb through the records - read of the all time greats - peruse the rolls of honour - Cavan to the fore in all.

We could have aligned ourselves to any county - in either sport. Could have gone with the Man U of GAA - but the Dubs need no help. We could have jumped the bandwagon and became Kilkenny supporters - ensuring ourselves a good sup at least twice a year. We could have gone West and marvelled at the silken skills of the Tribes - or gone East and marvelled at their hurling skills. We could have gone to Leitrim or Roscommon but neither would have forgiven us for going to either. Could've joined the Rebels but alas held no union cards. We could've gone all the way back to 7 years ago when football started or chosed a county that won many provincials but only one Sam. The world was our lobster but there was one solution only.

We figure there is not a county out there with the tradition that our guys have. The history - the legends. Just waiting to come good again. Yes we will jump on the bandwagon. But we will jump on it before it even hits the road. Our backing will be the catalyst. Cavan people may wallow in self pity - may over-reminisce of the glory days - may think that nobody cares - but we do. We want to see a Cavan man hoist the Anglo Celt. We want to see Breffni men back in Croker like they own it. And we will be there with them - slightly peeved that we were not born there - but happy to experience the return of a giant. This will be our season.

Ah Jayo you bring a lump to a mans throat as I dream of the Breffni men rekindling the glory days. surely it won't be long before cavan once again produces players that are household names and immortalised in balad, poem and song. This is the county that has given is John Joe, Mick Higgins, Charlie Gallagher, Gunner Brady, Lous Blessing, Ollie Brady, Tony Tighe and recent times Stephen King, Big Dermot, Peter Larry and Jason and of course the great Eddie O Reilly.

Any plans regarding the minibus and the display of colours- Will it be chest out and down the road with colours in full display or should you wait till Kells and Carnaross are safely negotiated - Perhpas Loyal has inside info on potential hositlity from the royals.
