Cavan football boss Mickey Graham

Cavan boss Mickey Graham says there is “a buzz around” the county as his side head into Sunday’s Tailteann Cup semi-final against Sligo.

The Breffni men head for Croke Park as 1/5 favourites to book their place in the inaugural competition’s decider.

Speaking to RTE Sport ahead of the showdown against the Yeats men, Graham says he’s expecting a large Cavan contingent to travel to headquarters this weekend.

"There is a buzz around Cavan about this cup, especially with the young kids," said the Cavan Gaels clubman.

"We wanted to keep developing and we had a good crowd against Down and we had about 6,000 at the Fermanagh game.

"So, I think the competition is going well. I think there will be a big crowd there from Cavan and the other three counties on Sunday.

"It’s early days but there have already been some great games in this competition and a lot of counties bought into it."
