Historic overview

The formal Cuala story can be traced from records of games in the area in the late-19th century and on through a variety of mergers, off-shoots, 'rests' and ressurections involving local clubs like Cuala Hurling Club, Naomh Mhuire, St Begnet's, Dalkey Mitchell's, Roger Casements and Cuala Boys.
