Ahead of the 2014 election Cavan was redrawn into three electoral areas, a reduction in one from four, and the number of councillors was reduced to 18, from a previous total of 25.[1]

Fianna Fáil had a good set of elections and only lost one seat overall when compared to 2009. By contrast Fine Gael lost 6 seats and their overall majority. This was one of the few Councils where Sinn Féin did not make gains as the party returned with the same number they had held in 2009.[1][2]
