In recent years it has fallen into disrepair , A listed building, it has been sold recently to Padraig and Sheila Smith, Kingscourt, who are wished well in their endeavours to restore the building to its former glory and see it reopened.
Although only one week to prepare for this year’s County Final , there was a tremendous build up of support in the area with the town awash with Blue and White bunting, flags, banners, support from all industries, businesses, shops and organisations. As usual there was a large following of support who travelled to Cavan for the match. Although losing by the smallest of margins, they were somewhat unlucky not to come away winner of the final. In what was a performance of the highest order in a closely fought encounter. The team and officials can be proud of the efforts involved by all on the day in a nail – biting finish.
