Tractor Run

The sun shone brilliantly on the Martin Cadden tractor run on Saturday when hundreds of tractors converged on the GFC park to set in motion a very unique sight. It was a magnificient sight to behold as the modern and vintage vehicles snailed their way through the neighbouring countryside and locals gathered at vantage points to cheer the drivers on with cameras at the ready. It was noticeable that there were many ladies among the . Before and after the run refreshments were served in the GFC John Wilson complex and also at other points along the route. Proceeds go towards the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust and the organisers appreciate the huge support from the parish and much further afield. This was a fine tribute to Martin, a local lad from farming stock who plied his trade around the world and sadly his untimely death brought a short but busy to an abrupt end. May he rest in peace.

U.S. Trip

When the Cavan team travelled to New York recently they put in a great effort to win the Mick Higgins Memorial Cup after a two-game tournament in Gaelic Park. Playing their part were local Clubmen Killian Brady and Enda Reilly and in fact the whole team and panel were a credit to their County. The carnival atmosphere which prevailed on Sunday afternoon was a follow-up to a previous Meet & Greet and a chance to catch up with old acquaintances and relax in good company. Some supporters who travelled for the occasion thoroughly enjoyed the event and were very impressed with the hospitality they received and the overall goodwill evident in the Irish/U.S. community. A big Thank You to all.
