The “Cuala” name derived from the fact that their area of operations coincided with the ancient Gaelic territory of Cuala – roughly from The Sugarloaf to Dún Laoghaire. Players from Dun Laoghaire, Sallynoggin and Dalkey had been heavily involved in this League and when an exclusively boys club was set up in 1962 by Richard Curran, Tom Holden and others, it’s fitting that they adopted the name Cuala Boys.
Cartlann Digiteach Cuala (Cuala Digital Archive) was established in 2009 to assemble an on-line archive of images, stories and memorabilia relating to Cuala and its ‘ancestral’ clubs.
