History

The O'Reilly family (still a very common surname in the area) established a castle in the town in the late 13th century. A Franciscan monastery was also established at around the same time. In the 15th century the local ruler, Bearded Owen O'Reilly, set up a market which attracted merchants from Dublin and Drogheda. King James I of England granted the town a charter in 1610. In the early 19th century the Maxwells, Lords Farnham of Cromwellian origin, built a new wide street, that still bears the name Farnham Street. This was lined with comfortable town houses, public buildings (such as the Court house which dates from 1825) and churches.The term "life of Reilly" was credited to the Reilly clans due to their great wealth and power, having issued their own currency during the 1600s.

In the late 19th century Cavan became an important rail junction between the midland and western lines and those of the Northern Railways. The Town Hall was built in 1909. In 1938 work began on the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Saints Patrick and Felim. Three miles west of Cavan town is the Anglican Kilmore Cathedral, which contains a Romanesque doorway dating from the 12th century. Farnham House to the northwest of Cavan town is one of the largest houses in Co. Cavan. It is believed to have been built for the Maxwell family in 1810 and designed by Francis Johnston a Dublin architect. It was recently sold by the widowed Lady Farnham to a local entrepreneur and the house and estate is now converted to a luxury hotel and leisure complex under the Radisson SAS international hotel group.

Transport

Road

There are about 30,000 people living within a 10 mile radius of the town, so infrastructure is very important. The town is located on the junction of two national routes, to Dublin and Belfast. The National Development Plan 2000 - 2006 provides for a major upgrading of the N3 route with a proposed dual carriageway from Kells to Dublin and high quality single carriageway from Kells to Cavan which will also eventually bypass Virginia. The N3 and N55 eastern bypass around Cavan town was fully completed in March 2006, eliminating the need for heavy traffic to enter the congested town. A major problem for the town is that there is not a rail service.

Rail

Cavan used to have two railway stations (GNR and CIÉ) on the end-on junction of the Belfast/Cavan and the Cavan/Dublin via the Inny Junction, and Mullingar lines. A branch of the Cavan & Leitrim Railway (3' gauge) was also indirectly linked to Cavan town via Belturbet (the C&L terminus) and Ballyhaise on the GNR line. When the Stormont Government closed the section of the Belfast line from Portadown to Glaslough in 1957, it was found to be uneconomical to keep running the rump section from Monaghan to Cavan. All these lines (including the Cavan & Leitrim Railway) were closed by 1960. The Virginia Road Station also once serviced the route between Kells and Oldcastle. Cooperation between the Cavan and Westmeath county councils are striving to integrate this into the national and regional development plan. See also Transport 21.

Future Infrastructure
