Focus on youth starting to pay off for resurgent Cavan

There have not been many great days for Cavan senior football teams in recent times but yesterday was certainly one of them.
Not alone did Terry Hyland's young team beat Armagh but they did so in a manner that has not been seen in the Breffni colours for many years. One result, of course, can often be rated a flash in the pan but this was no such victory.
For a start, the resurgence of Cavan is based on three successive Ulster U-21 championship victories and a minor title as well. Cavan people will tell you that something happened when these U-21 teams started winning Ulster – the players were no longer careless about their commitment but filled with the communal desire to wear the famous jerseys with pride.
