A fedora / f ɪ ˈ d ɔː r ə / [1] is a hat with a soft brim and indented crown. [2] [1] It is typically creased lengthwise down the crown and "pinched" near the front on both sides. [3] Fedoras can also be creased with teardrop crowns, diamond crowns, center dents, and others, and the positioning of pinches can vary. The typical crown height is 4.5 inches (11 cm).

The brim is usually approximately 2.5 inches (6.4 cm) wide, but may be wider, [2] can be left "raw edged" (left as cut), finished with a sewn overwelt or underwelt, or bound with a trim-ribbon. "Stitched edge" means that there is one, two or more rows of stitching radiating inward toward the crown. The "Cavanagh Edge" is a welted edge with invisible stitching to hold it in place and is a very expensive treatment that can no longer be performed by modern hat factories. [4]

The term fedora was in use as early as 1891. Its popularity soared, and eventually it eclipsed the similar-looking homburg. [2]

Cavan ( / ˈ k æ v ən / ; Irish : an Cabhán , meaning "the hollow") is the county town of County Cavan in Ireland. The town lies in Ulster , near the border with Northern Ireland. The town is on the main N3 road that links Dublin (to the south) with Enniskillen , Ballyshannon and Donegal Town (to the north).

The O'Reillys later built a new castle in the late fourteenth century on Tullymongan Hill, overlooking the town centre. In the 15th century, the local ruler, Bearded Owen O'Reilly, expanded the town marketplace which attracted merchants from Dublin and Drogheda. The phrase "life of Reilly" is believed to derive from the great wealth and power of the O'Reilly clans, some of which came from their market. They also allowed counterfeit English and Scottish coins to be minted in their territory at this time. [1]

King James I granted the town a charter in 1610. This also entitled Cavan town to send two members to the Irish parliament. In February 1690 it was the site of the Battle of Cavan between Williamite and Jacobite troops , during which much of the town was burned. The Jacobite general William Nugent was killed during the battle. [2] Later, during the 18th century, local administrative influence and power passed to the Maxwell family, descendants of Robert Maxwell , Church of Ireland Bishop of Kilmore (1643–1672), a family who later entered the peerage as Baron Farnham.

The new mayor of Waverley has promised a new approach to the controversial Bondi Pavilion upgrade, which could see the earlier plans scrapped entirely under a new-look Labor and Greens dominated council.

Labor's John Wakefield was elected Waverley mayor on Tuesday night, and Greens councillor Dominic Wy Kanak was elected deputy mayor after the parties brokered a deal to shut the Liberals out of the coveted positions for the next three years.

Dublin remain on course for a historic hat-trick of All-Ireland titles after demolishing the challenge of Ulster champions Tyrone in the second All-Ireland semi-final at Croke Park before a sell-out attendance of over 82,000.

So, for third time in four seasons and for the second year in a row Dublin will take on Mayo in the All-Ireland decider in three weeks' time.

A Con O'Callaghan goal in the fifth minute set the tone for a totally dominant first-half performance by Dublin which surely spells the end of the blanket defence and possibly the managerial career of Tyrone boss Mickey Harte.
