Castlebar Mitchels win inaugural David Gavin Cup

September 29, 2018

Castlebar Mitchels captain Ger McDonagh is presented with the David Gavin Cup (Mayo SFL Division 1) by the Gavin family.

Castlebar Mitchels became the first holders of the David Gavin Cup following their 1-19 to 2-10 victory over Crossmolina today.

Presented to the Mayo Senior League Division 1 winners, the trophy is named in memory of the late Breaffy footballer David Gavin, who drowned in Canada last year.

His body wasn't recovered until earlier this year after water levels receded at the lake where he had been swimming. The 26-year-old's remains were brought back to Breaffy where he was laid to rest in May.

Members of David's family presented the trophy to the winning Castlebar captain Ger McDonagh after today's final league game.
