Cavan Chamber of Commerce was re-established in 2007 and is a progressive, forward thinking organisation with the success of Cavan at the heart of everything we do. The board of directors is made up of a group of determined business people who operate on open door policy in relation to the chamber. Members include manufacturing companies, professional service businesses, trades people, retailers and catering and hospitality businesses. Chamber directors communicate on an ongoing basis with relevant stakeholders in Cavan, including local authority, state agencies and community groups. We believe that by working together we can achieve more and that positive communication is key in order for us to promote Cavan as an excellent place in which to do business and live.
Cavan Town Council was, prior to its abolition in 2014, responsible for the delivery of local authority services in Cavan Town including Housing, Roads, Environmental, Planning and Recreational. Policies and initiatives to develop and promote the Town as a place to live, work and visit were implemented by the Council in partnership with state agencies and many other local community groups. In recent years the Town Council has been recognized nationally and internationally for its work in developing the town economically, socially and culturally. Cavan Town Council was abolished at the 2014 Local Elections and its functions transferred to Cavan County Council.

About This Project
The Walking History project was a great collaboration between Cavan Chamber, Cavan Town Council and members of the public. Cavan Chamber and Cavan Town Council have worked very well together over the past seven years on several projects and this final project, prior to the closure of the Town Council, was possible thanks to funding approved by the Town Councillors for the website and the signs, and gratefully received by Cavan Chamber. Ideas, information, time, effort and passion for the Walking Tours were provided in particular by Kathleen Conaty, Paul Connolly, Fiona Duffy, Mike Geraghty, Neil Doherty, Brian Hora, Michael Swords, Lyn Sharkey and Dermot Walsh. We thank everyone who helped out or contributed to this project, which we believe will develop even further and provide a wonderful tourist attraction and be an educational tool for locals to inspire pride and interest in our heritage.
We would also like to acknowledge that a lot of the photographs in our gallery are from Dermot Walsh’s private collection. We would also like to acknowledge the architectural drawings by Philip and Judith Cullivan, which the Cullivan family have allowed us to use.
