The year 1987 is going to stand out in the history of the club. It was the year that Cuchulainns won the intermediate championship and in fact were unbeaten until September 6th, 1987. The inclusion of young players such as Fintan Cahill, Jimmy Reilly and Noel Donohoe along with the more experienced players, under the capable management of Cormac Cahill, produced a winning brand of football.

Lavey v Lacken; If lacken get there main men back its hard to see anything but a lacken win but if Shane Tierney and Gerry Smith can get a go at the game i dunno if lacken have the players to stop them.Castlerahan v Kingscourt; Castlerahan easy!!Gowna v Gaels; Couldnt get job done against a depleted ramor team with an extra man, dont be surprised to see gaels win by 8.Ramor v Crosserlough; Ramor have been very unlucky this championship with the disallowed point vs lacken and then ripped apart with injuries/ j1s but showed good heart to draw with gowna and have a man down from 2nd minute so i do really think they could have a huge say, ramor by 4.

Ballymachugh made the breakthrough at Junior Championship level in 2017 but had a poor enough campaign last year. The Hughs have a bye in the first round of the championship. In the championship they will look to consolidate their intermediate status but are more than capable of causing a shock or two on this year's league form. The return of former county man Liam Buchanan to the middle of the field has allowed James Smith and Mark Kiernan to supplement the attack along with Padraig Galligan (above). The introduction of minor stars Darragh Sheridan, Patrick Goldrick and Ryan Smith has offset the loss of Dillon and Darragh Kiernan to travel and injury respectively. BallymachughUnder the management of former Crosserlough selector Raymond Reilly, the Hughs have already achieved this year's core objective by topping Division 3 and gaining automatic promotion. This term, they appear to have their mojo back, losing just once (away to Drumgoon) in the regular league before falling to the same side in last Sundays final.

Ballinagh v Cuchulainns Betting Odds - Winner

In 2017, Laragh again lost by the minimum, this time to eventual winners Shercock in the quarter-final while last year, they were beaten by two points in the semi-final by Cuchulainns. Laragh UnitedLaragh have been building with a young team for a few years now and have been knocking on the door at intermediate level. They say the table does not lie but in this case, its certainly telling fibs. In 2016, they were beaten by a point in the semi-final by Killinkere, who themselves lost by the final by the same margin after a replay against Arva. The current side, under former Meath star Jody Devine, is a well-balanced one. On the evidence of those results, they have been very close and that feeling was underpinned when they gained promotion to Division 1 of the ACFL for this year. They began their season with three defeats, had a good win over Kingscourt and then lost three more and seemed to be heading for relegation but their revival started with a fantastic 2-16 to 2-15 victory over Cavan Gaels five weeks ago. MacRory Cup medallist Fergal ORourke is one of the top goalkeepers around while wing-backs Lee Reilly and Ian Leddy love to bomb forward. A narrow loss to Castlerahan was followed by an away success in Cootehill (not an easy place to go, with the Gaels, Lacken, Kingscourt and Gowna all failing to win there) and another in Mullahoran. Playing in Division 1 will stand to them and they are expected to make a bold bid for championship honours. Laraghs slow start was a result of a horrendous injury list; as players began to return to the fold, performances picked up and results followed. Shane ORourke and Fergal McKenna form a physically powerful midfield with the likes of Paul Smith and the tall, rangy and athletic Jack McKenna among the stand-outs in a mobile front six. Their league campaign in the top flight started poorly.

In 1985 Cuchulainns gained promotion to division 2 and contested both the league and intermediate championship finals. The intermediate championship final was reached by beating literally the best teams in the competition. Gowna, the opponents in the final, proved once again to be the bogey team. One only has to remember the thrilling games against Kildallan, Denn and Killeshandra. Cuchulainns fought hard to get into this game but with Gowna dominating midfield there was to be no joy for the large group of supporters from the parish.

Every player played their part in a valuable away win. In addition, it took Cuchulainns 22 minutes to score through Thomas Reilly and when the same player pointed for them again in the 25th minute, Drung knew that they were going to be really upset against it. For instance, Colm Andersons courageous save prevented the home side from opening the scoring within seconds of the throw-in. In a fast, open game, both sides moved the ball at pace but the visitors were particularly guilty of dropping the ball short into the goalkeepers hands on a number of occasions.

The Cuchulainn lads were surprised to win their section and advance to the finals. The Cuchulainns football team were crowned County 7 A side champions. The county board included in the millennium celebrations a "7 A side club" run off competition. Cuchulainns entered a team for play in Ballyhaise. The finals were played that same day in the evening in Terry Coyle Park, Cavan. The competition was to be on one Saturday in May.

Latest Tips

At this stage the Cuchulainns midfield had the upper hand. Cuchulainns responded with a goal and a point from R.Carolan. However, the tactic of lobbing in some high centres into the Killeshandra square proved fruitless and a great deal of good possession was wasted. However, time was running out they could only get within a point of the opposition. Cuchulainns with the benefit of the breeze in the first half enjoyed a greater share of the play but found themselves trailing by 0-4 to 0-2 at the interval. As the game entered the third quarter Killeshandra gradually took control, having built up a commanding six point lead.

Like the drawn match, the replay was a very close encounter and the possibility of extra time loomed until Aidan Connell snatched a point in the dying moments of the game. However, with M. Stanley in commanding form in midfield, Munterconnaught laid the foundations for victory. If the 1970s saw a gradual decline in the playing fortunes of the club, the 1980s have seen a gradual improvement as the successful juveniles came through to adult level. The final score was 010 to 16. Munterconnaught the more balanced outfit settled quickly. Cuchulainns relying heavily on Ray Carolan found it harder to get into their stride and it was indeed the second half before they really got into the game. Hetherton and O. The match itself was fast and exiting, but both sets of forwards found scores hard to come by. The Anglo Celt reports that both teams played with resolute determination in a tough exciting match, the final score being 24 to 07. The final was to be another disappointing day for Cuchulainns, with their opponents Munterconnaught gaining their first intermediate championship title. Cuchulainns did have a good championship run in 1980 when they overcame the challenge of Killygarry after a replay to reach the intermediate championship final.
