Cavan’s seven in a row.

O’Reilly’s seven

The great Cavan side won seven Ulster titles in a row from 1939-45 with Tom O’Reilly as captain for all those wins. ‘Big’ Tom O’Reilly won 13 Ulster titles in total as well as winning three All-Irelands and even found the time to serve as a TD from 1944-48. His brother JJ took over from him as captain to lift the Sam Maguire in the Polo Grounds final of 1947.
