History Makers

Congratulations to our Senior Ladies players and management for securing a first-ever win at the highest level of the Club game in the Capital.

It was a long mid-week trip over to Fingallians but shorter on the way back with a 3-08 to 1-03 win.

The 4ths went down by a single point against Lucan Sarsfields while the seconds ran into a very strong team from Na Fianna.


Our Senior Men’s Footballers are home to Naomh Mearnog in Hyde Park at 5-30 PM on Saturday.  The seconds are away to Na Fianna at the same time.

There’s a Double Header with the 3rd’s and 4th’s at Hyde Park on Sunday 11 AM against Round Towers for the former and 3 PM against Parnells for the latter.  The fifth’s round out the football weekend away to St Marks at 3 PM on Sunday.

It’s a “Super Sunday” of adult camogie championship action this week with no less than 4 crucial games to chose from, with three of these at home venues.

Support welcome from across the club for all squads – thanks to the big numbers who came to support the first squad in Meadow Vale last week.

Our first squad have a chance to bounce back from last week’s loss with a “must win” last group game v Ballinteer St Johns in Meadow Vale at 1030.

At the same starting time in Thomastown our second squad have their championship semi-final against Round Towers A and then in Meadow Vale at 12pm our third squad take on Castleknock C in their championship semi-final. And then to wrap up the day our fighting fourths take on Fingallians away at 3pm in Swords in their Shield Final.

Well done to all players and good luck across these 4 big games on Sunday.It was a busy day of football with four games played throughout the day, and four Championship wins secured.


The Senior Hurlers were back in the zone last weekend with a strong 2-23 to 1-13 win over Crumlin.

The Seconds were also in flying form with a 3-26 to 1-08 win over Thomas Davis, and the fourths put up a similar score against O’Tooles.

The thirds and the fifths will live to fight another day.


The elder statesman of our Fifth Hurling team, Tim Carey, was on the radio this week to talk about the joys of finding the sport, perhaps a little later than some, and of making his Championship debut past his  half-century.

Listen back to Tim’s chat about Social Sports right here. 


There was sadness across the club in the past week with the loss of two valued family members.

It was with great sadness that we heard of the sudden passing in Chicago of Cathal Tierney, close brother to Dearbhail (Sheanon), Ríonach (O’Callaghan), Fionán in New York and Cormac.

As well as his own family in Chicago, he was a much-loved uncle to all his nephews and nieces, including 8 current adult playing members of the club.

Cathal was a great supporter of Cuala and took a keen interest in the on-field exploits and achievements of his nephews and nieces.

Our thoughts are with his wife children and all his family members.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.

Our heartfelt sympathies also go out to Fintan Buckley, Leonie, Maria and Carmel on the loss of Fintan’s mother Raideen


Today is the last chance for soon to be engineers, computer scientists and others to benefit from a career opportunity that is a real winner.

As sponsors of the adult football and Camogie sections, Amgen are once again offering one Cuala member a spot on their coveted 3rd level internship program.

It is the third year that this opportunity is available to Cuala members, but the deadline is on us.

If you are studying Science, Engineering, Biotechnology, Mechatronics, Electronics, Electrical Engineering or Computer Science, you are eligible to apply.

The internship will be full time on site on the Pottery Road site and will run from early 2022 for six months.

See the full details below, but if you have any further questions, please email

The closing date for applications is today, September 24th.


It is like a black and white jigsaw puzzle of a Rubick’s Cube but Mairéad has done her best to accommodate all our winter training needs kicking off next week.

We are down a number of facilities in the short term and so the overall training opportunities are reduced for a number of teams.  It has just been impossible to fit everyone in for everything they want.

You should be hearing or have heard from your team mentors with the new dates and times and we will be updating to the Cuala Schedule shortly as well but here is a screengrab of the schedule as of this morning…

If you know of anywhere that might be available to plug the gaps, Mairead would love to hear from you.


We are planning a big Home4Cuala celebration night on Saturday, October 30th

It promises to be a fantastic night of fun, music and glamour as the stars of Hollywood come to dance the night away.

Time to dust down the sparkly sequin outfits, and of course whatever the ladies want to wear…


Are you a keen cyclist and would like to wear your club colours on the road?

Well, we might have just the thing for you.

Due to demand from last week, we are now setting up a link to a custom order page where all sizes can be checked and payment can be completed. This will be available next week.

Please send any additional queries to or call 01 2600749


2010 boys have been enjoying Sunday morning hurling skills sessions with Shane O’Brien and Pat Hogan for the last few weeks.  They look as though they are enjoying things.
