Share your love for the Breffni County with Cavan Day next month!

Fiona Frawley

Following the huge success of its inaugural event last year, Cavan Day, the online celebration of Cavan and its people returns on Saturday, 25th September.

Anyone looking to get involved can do so very easily – simply share your love of Cavan on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the #CavanDay hashtag.

You can post a picture of yourself in your county jersey or county colours, a video greeting to friends or family overseas, share a special memory you have of Cavan, post a photo/story of your Cavan ancestry or a picture of your favourite place in Cavan. Businesses can also get involved by offering Cavan Day discounts or lighting up their premises in blue – get creative!

Cathaoirleach of Cavan County Council, Cllr Clifford Kelly, said

Cavan is a place worth celebrating and its people have achieved great things throughout history right up to the present day. Only recently, Leona Maguire made history being selected for the Solheim Cup, while Britney Arendse did the county proud as she led her nation during the Paralympics opening ceremony. I would encourage all Cavan people, those with Cavan ancestry, and friends of the county to get involved with #CavanDay this Saturday, 25th September and share their love of this special place with the world.

Chief Executive of Cavan County Council Tommy Ryan added,

Last September, the first-ever Cavan Day was a great success, with an astonishing worldwide reach of over 10 million. Throughout the day Cavan people and friends of Cavan created a ‘blue wave’ of positivity and achieved a real sense of community and we hope to replicate that energy and build on the friendships made this Cavan Day, 25th September.

A special online #CavanDay Live broadcast will air on Facebook, YouTube, and on Cavan TV on the 25th, featuring a cultural showcase filmed live at Town Hall Cavan with performances from Lisa O’Neill, Noel Monahan, Martin Donohoe and many more airing at 8pm (Irish time).

A great opportunity to join in the fun, throw on your county colours and join the global Cavan family in sharing your love for the Breffni County.
