Club Administration & Development

In addition to its normal day-to-day work – overseeing routine tasks in and around the Club – the Coiste play an important role in developing strategic initiatives such as planning, improving facilities, facilitating growth and other special initiatives.

A great deal of work gets done “behind the scenes” across all sections of the Club to ensure Cuala is organisationally and financially equipped for the challenges that it faces. It is important to acknowledge that the vast majority of this work is completed by Cuala members and volunteers giving willingly and freely of their time. We are deeply appreciative of their efforts and support.

Another vital element of our support comes from businesses of all shapes and sizes who recognise Cuala’s unique place the community and who generously provide support for teams, events and projects. We urge all members and supporters to review our list of Corporate & Team Sponsors.

Cuala members are welcome to contact Coiste if you need assistance or information about any aspect of the Club. Most importantly, there is a role for everybody in our Club projects and all offers of help will be warmly received. If you are interested in helping with any of the areas outlined or if you have expertise or ideas that you think will be of benefit to Cuala, please don’t hesitate to contact any member of the Coiste. You don’t have to be a member of Coiste to participate in or lead a club project.


Information displayed on each section is the responsibility of each section – secretary’s are asked to ensure that the information is up-to-date and maintained. In particular, committee members, & contact details should be notified to the at the start of each new season to reflect any changes in personnel. Each section is also responsible for posting team updates and news items on the website.

Games Administration

Day-to-day administration of games falls under one of many Team Committees under the direction of 6 Games Sections whose boundaries are determined by gender and age (see chart)

Some ‘seats’ at Coiste are filled by “Games Representatives” who are elected, by all club members, at the Club AGM.  The nominees are typically those identified by their respective Games Sections at their local AGMs.
