Breifne Abú Cavan GAA Records 1886-2011
Published in 2011, Breifne Abú provides a wonderful reference point for the many people who share a passion for GAA activity, not alone in Cavan but throughout the GAA family. It is the result of meticulous research and cross-checking of all the available facts on the history of Cavan GAA for 125 years. On the record we have fixtures, scores, teams, substitutes, referees, administrators, team managers, hurling, schools and colleges, Railway Cup, noteworthy feats, ballads and recitations etc – thousands of facts. In its pages the author has settled arguments, provided a source for historians with easy reference, and left us a great social history. The family names peculiar to the different parishes is especially interesting and historians will find this work invaluable. This book is also an eye-opener for a new generation who may discover some of their ancestors in there, and it is perhaps a source of questions for a round-table quiz!
