In many ways, J.T. Bradley’s is very much the same as it was over 100 years ago. Locals still gather in the morning to share a coffee and a story and it’s still not unusual to see a horse hitched out front. As a social hub of the community, the store has the old time country feel while at the same time offering the modern convenience that we have all come to expect as we deal with our busy lives.
In May of 2015, an opportunity to become a distributor of Purina feed came about and J.T. Bradleys decided to expand our Store to include this very important category. Being a distributor of Horse, Cattle, Poultry, Swine, Goat, Rabbit, and Pet Feed is a wonderful extension of the J.T. Bradley’s offering to the Community. Selling Feed truly brings us back to our roots as we used to sell Feed in the mid 1900s and We are thrilled to be partnered with the Purina Brand.
The Bradley Cup is the oldest known hockey trophy still in existence in the local area. In 1929 a local Navan merchant, John Thomas Bradley, who was an avid hockey fan, introduced the cup as a championship trophy for local men’s hockey teams. Over the years, the Bradley Cup was competed for many times and became known as a community symbol of local hockey supremacy. Although it sat idle for a period during World War II, in 1946 it was revived as the championship trophy for the Russell County Hockey League, until 1956 when it was permanently retired.
Four years ago, a group of men’s hockey teams got together and decided to re-introduce the Bradley Cup challenge and rekindle some of that local hockey spirit, by organizing a one day tournament that was held on March 25, 2016. In keeping with tradition, local teams representing the communities of Cumberland, Navan, Orleans, Sarsfield, Hammond and Vars were invited to take part in the competition. The hockey was fast and entertaining, with Cumberland being the victors.
The Bradley Cup Charity Hockey Tournament is a community fundraiser. The event has attracted over 500 players and spectators in each of the four years it has run. Over $43,000.00 has been raised in the last four years for local families and groups that are in need. All net proceeds will be donated to the Navan Lions Club who help local families and groups that need extra help. Here are some of the groups that have received funds
