Pics: The Australian squad meet the young Cavan locals ahead of first Test

The Australian International Rules squad have arrived in Cavan ahead of their first game on Saturday night in Breffni Park and have quickly got involved with the local community.

The Aussies geared up for the contest with Ireland with a victory in a warm-up game last night but are now focusing their attentions on the all-important first game this weekend.

Before that however, the travelling party were keen to get out and about in their new surroundings and their school visits seemed to do the trick.

We’re not sure if the term ‘mobbed’ is a slight exaggeration, but good to see the tourists mingling with many of the supporters who will be at Breffni Park on Saturday night.

Cavan Town has put a lot of effort in with a whole host of activities arranged for the weekend to coincide with the match, which hasn't gone unnoticed by one of the finest Irish players to ever grace the AFL and the current assistant coach of  the Indigenous All Stars

Let’s hope the action on the pitch matches the activities off it this weekend.
