While Cumann na mBunscol activities were well established in many other counties, it wasn't until the early eighties that they were introduced to Cavan, albeit on a smaller scale. Paddy Gill and Philip Clarke organised skills competitions and Mini Sevens and continued in this vein for a period of about 10 years.
In 1993, following a visit from members of An Coiste Náisiúnta, Coiste an Chábháin was set up with a full compliment of officers and committee members and have been running a full range of activities since then.
Cathaoirleach appointed then was Nicholas Baxter with Paddy Gill as Rúna?cum Cisteoir.Competitions including Boys and Girls Football Leagues, Hurling and Camogie Leagues, Mini Sevens, Handball and Quizzes were run on a yearly basis. A booklet , containing all fixtures, rules and regulations and other important information was produced.
