Get over what? Just a bit of banter although I do think it's poor form all the efforts put into Cavan hurling & yet Cavan Gaels (in Cavan town) make no effort."
Keeper you constantly belittle anyone who doesn't hold hurling in the same regard you do. There are numerous clubs around the country that concentrate solely on one code, both hurling and football. Why should Cavan Gaels have a hurling side?"]How come a small rural area be so successful as a dual club while a club covering a large urban area can only concentrate on one? Especially after all the money & effort that's gone into Cavan Hurling Development! Why should they? Because they're a big GAA club so why shouldn't they?"]There is an interest for it in Slaughneil, no interest in Cavan gaels. Perhaps that's why? Why don't Longford have a rounders team? Why doesn't your club have a rounders team?"]Go away with your rounders. Slaughtneil didn't have a tradition of hurling but somehow managed to create one. My point is that every major urban area in the country has at least one big GAA club. There should be plenty room to cater for & promote an appetite for hurling in all such areas. If the likes of Castlerahan can make an effort so can Cavan Gaels. Loads of hurling initiatives happening over the last number of years in Breffni 3G, only around the corner from them."]Love this. So hurling should be compulsory in Cavan Gaels but another sport of the GAA in rounders is considered to be irrelevant. I love the game of hurling, I played it myself when I was younger and would love to see it stronger in Cavan and other areas but if there is no demand you can't force people to participate in it. The people of Cavan gaels are interested in football, not hurling. The people of Slaughtneil are interested in both. Now please quit with the snide remarks about cavan gaels not having a hurling side and discuss the upcoming ulster final.

For me I can only see one winner. Cavan gaels scored three goals on Sunday that came from shots dropping short. Can't see them having the same luck on Sunday. Slaughtneil are to strong and have been around the block enough to deal with this. Slaughtneil by 4."]A large GAA town with no demand for hurling? How do you think 'demand' is fabricated in similar county towns like Carrick-on-Shannon, Longford & Roscommon? They're even trying again in Enniskillen!!"]Lisbellaw is the only hurling club in Fermanagh. Lisnaskea were about but as far as i'm aware they are no longer taking part. The knocks had one a few years ago and it's no longer in existence. Just for the record there is a big difference between trying and there actually being an interest in it. Why did I never see you criticise Portumna for their lack of a football team?

Could you please get back to the ulster final and not the lack of hurling in Cavan Gaels."]There's about 6 underage hurling clubs in Fermanagh up to U14 level now. You not even aware of that??? Portumna hasn't a fraction of the population that Cavan Gaels have at their disposal so not a very good comparison.

Up Slaughtneil!

Regardless how much is spent on them our County seniors still wouldn't kick it out to the Dubs. It is incumbent on GAA & all the County Boards to promote Gaelic Games not just football. It's easy to say there's no demand when hurling in Longford, Cavan or Fermanagh has never been properly promoted. Slaughtneil have proved that you can promote hurling in a GFC without it being in any way to the detriment of football.

Actually Ballygunner have an associated Gaelic football club beside them so you'd look pretty foolish doing so.

In football's defense it's a much easier sell in hurling counties. The infrastructures and traditions are already there even in the hurling strongholds and any aspiring footballer will have meaningful competition readily available. The same cannot be said for hurling in the football strongholds. Any serious athlete will have very little competition available to him hurling wise so football is where it's at. Hurling's a good cross sport for young lads but football is where the glory and role models lie so follow through is difficult. It's good to see hurling people trying to revive it but you can hardly blame footballing folk if they want to dedicate their time to their sport.
Back to the topic, I think Gaels will be closer than people think. A fully fit Lyng will be a major boost and will add a bit of creativity to what is a very hard working and balanced team. Slaughtneil missing a few regulars which may impact them and while they were fantastic against Kilcar they may never play as well again. I think 4:1 is very good value. Is Murphy available for Gaels?

Isn't Mullahoran only a few mile from Cavan town? Surely that should have the Cavan Gaels boys in the clear using your logic.

It's 10 or 12 mile. They are neighbour clubs.

They are not neighbouring clubs. It's almost 14 miles & you will pass by the Lacken & Ballinagh club pitches before getting from one to the other.

Yes I'm aware of that. It was a typo. I meant to say they aren't neighbour clubs .

Anyways some waffling on this thread.

Who is gonna go from Cavan town nearly 14 miles out the road to hurl for Mullahoran? My point is Cavan hurling will never progress until it's accommodated in the largest urban centre in the county. Cavan Gaels are best placed to provide this as they're the main town team & they had hurling in the club in the past. I realise this discussion has gone well off topic but hey...!

Do Longford Slashers have a hurling team in Longford?
And if so who beat them in the Leinster Club Championship this year?
Look your Longford football manager LC even went to College in Cavan and played for St Pats, people can argue how does something like that improve Longford football.
If Cavan Gaels don't want to play hurling is down to them .
Any club in Longford who can't play football just get a Cavan Manager in and you will see improvement!!

Yes Slashers have a hurling team. Lost by a point to Wolfe Tones in a terrific county final here. What Longford manager LC went to school in St. Pat's? St. Mel's College in Longford has a better name for football than Pat's any day! Admittedly, Mickey Graham has done really well with Mullinalaghta so fair play to him.
