Now in its third year, and a fixture on the calendar of Cavan people across the globe, Cavan Day will once again see Cavan people and friends of Cavan worldwide share their love of the county on social media with photos, videos, and stories using the #CavanDay hashtag.
This year’s Cavan Day celebrations will see a special concert broadcast by the acclaimed John O'Grady live from the Riverfront in Virginia at 8pm (watch concert), featuring some of the best-known songs associated with the Breffni County.
In addition, plans for the long-awaited Cavan Calling homecoming event taking place from 27-30 July 2023 will be announced, with a special promotional video to be launched on the day.
Cathaoirleach of Cavan County Council, Councillor John Paul Feeley said, “Cavan Day is an excellent initiative which brings together the global Cavan family in a spirit of shared pride and common purpose – extolling the virtues of this unique county and its people. Taking part is easy and open to all – simply take to your social network of choice and post a picture, video, or story which shows your love for the county, making sure to use the #CavanDay hashtag. Those not on social media can take part by proudly donning their county colours on the day.”
Chief Executive of Cavan County Council, Tommy Ryan added that “The idea for an online Cavan Day came about when the original Cavan Calling event was postponed in 2020 due to covid. It’s fitting that we will use Cavan Day 2022 to launch the re-scheduled Cavan Calling, which will now take place from 27th to 30th July 2023. Make sure to join in the Cavan Day festivities and tune into www.cavancalling.com at 8pm on Saturday, 24th September for the Cavan Day concert and a sneak peek at what we have planned for Cavan Calling!”
