Gowna are a Gaelic football club from County Cavan in Ireland. They are affiliated to Cavan GAA


The Early Years[]

GAA has been present in the local Gowna area since as early as 1889 and the club went under the name of Scrabby West Breffnians or 'Breffnies' as they were otherwise known. It may come as a surprise to some that Gowna had a thriving hurling team in the 1920s that contended senior championships. Gowna's first major football success came in 1916 in the form of a junior championship followed in 1925 by Intermediate championship success. Gowna GFC, as we know it today, was officially reformed in 1976 and has gone through some major developmental change. The 'post reform' park was officially opened in 1982 and was revamped in 2011 to stand as it is today.

Major Successes[]

Gowna GFC is a club steeped in history with many great wins and successes but it would be hard not to single out the Senior Football Championship wins in 1988, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000 and 2002. The club also has the accolade of having Cavan's last ever nominated All Star winner in Dermot McCabe from the 1997 Cavan team.
