Needs rewrite[edit]

The following section needs to be rewritten from a neutral POV:

"The county board has now discontinued the senior hurling team resulting in Cavan now been the only county in Ireland without a senior hurling representative team. This move to finance the payment of "expenses" to the senior football management team and players still has not paid dividend on the football side. Due to the in breed politics of Cavan GAA nothing will change in this regard for at least a generation."

Cavan Ulster Senior Football Championships:39?[edit]

How many times have cavan won the ulster championship,39?

Cavan only have 37 Ulster titles

1903? Armagh 2-02 Antrim 1-04 1922? Monaghan 2-03 R[3-04] and Cavan 2-03 R[3-03]

Cavan have only won 37 ulster championship, Back in 1922 ulster Football championship Final between Monaghan 2-03 Cavan 2-03 played out a draw in Clones 1922. The A specials invaded Clones in the free state. because of these activities and the continuing ’Troubles’, as they were called, all GAA competitions in Ulster fell very much into arrears as several of the Monaghan players had been arrested by ‘A Specials’ at Dromore, Co. Tyrone, when on their way to play Derry in the 1921 ulster championship Final. The 1921 Ulster Final was not played until October 1923 where Monaghan beat Derry 2-02 0-01, as several of the Monaghan players had been arrested by ‘A Specials’ at Dromore, Co. Tyrone, when on their way to play Derry, in Derry, for the original fixture. All of them were ‘O’Duffy Men’,.While diplomatic efforts made buy Eoin O¹Duffy to release the ‘Monaghan footballers’ continued apace, the local situation became extremely tense O’Duffy was instrumental in obtaining the later release of all ten in 1922 .Back in 1922 ulster Football championship final between Monaghan 2-03 and Cavan 2-03 played out a draw in Clones in 1922. The 1922 Final Replay was not played until April 1923 in Belturbet Co Cavan due to the troubles in clones, The ulster championship Final finished Monaghan 3-04 Cavan 3-03 Monaghan then went on to play Dublin where Monaghan lost to Dublin 2-5 – 0-0 in the All Ireland Semi-Final on the 15 July 1923. The 1923 Final between Monaghan and Cavan was later played on 2nd September in the new Breffni park in Cavan town where Cavan won 5-10 to 1-01. It is a miss conception that Cavan won the 1922 Final due to the Monaghan not being able to field a team in the 1922 ulster championship Repaly.Gazzas46zs (talk) 19:33, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
