Cavan's Allianz League Division 1 survival hopes received an unexpected boost this afternoon when they stunned Mayo in Castlebar.
Without a win going into the game, Mattie McGleenan's charges were full value for their victory over last year's beaten All-Ireland finalists, much to the delight of their supporters but to the dismay of their Mayo counterparts.
Hardest working side won. Fair play Cavan. No need panic for mayo but a lot of work to do. #mayo#cav- Conor.mortimer (@Conmort) March 19, 2017

Great show from Cavan, first Div 1 win. Gearoid McKiernan, Dara McVeety, Martin Reilly superb. Mayo looking a bit dispirited.- Colm Keys (@KeysColm) March 19, 2017
