In 1947, Cavan beat Kerry 2-11 to 2-7 in the Polo Grounds, New York in a historic All-Ireland Final. Our centre of excellence will celebrate our past and build our future. This facility will be an inspiring venue in the heart of our county that empowers Cavan people to engage positively with gaelic games and increase the availability of floodlit, grass pitches in Cavan for male and female teams.

Work has already begun on recently acquired land surrounding Kingspan Breffni, our county stadium.
