The Cuala Academy Annual Sponsored Walk will take place this year on Saturday 11th March 2022.  Save the date!

For those new to the club, this is the one big fundraiser that the Academy holds each year, raising funds for equipment, pitch hire etc and is hugely important for the Academy.

A corporate sponsorship option is available costing just €250 each and is a great way to support the club and advertise your business to the hundreds of families who will be getting these cards into their homes.  It would be a great way for local businesses in particulr to support Cuala.

We’re keen to get replies on this asap as the sooner we fill the card the quicker we can issue them to the kids. We need a minimum of two sponsors per team to hit our target and we are waiting to put your name in lights. Please contact us ASAP through your year lead if you are willing to help out. Cuala abú!!!



Over 70 percent of us have now paid in full or a first installment on the Club membership which is now due.

You have to be a member to play, coach, train, or be involved and with matched kicking off in the next few weeks you really do need to get this ball rolling if you want to take part in kicking or puc-ing the others.


Legally to be involved as a coach you have to be up to date with Garda Vetting and Safeguarding.  If the latter is running out anytime soon we have another course being delivered in person  on March 6th.

Contact your year lead or Ken Fitzgerald to book a place.

This March all roads lead to Johnstown Estate, Enfield for the Leinster GAA Coaching Conference, powered by TURAS – Leinster GAA’s Player and Coach Development programme.

The day itself will see Guest Speakers discuss all facets of the Club Environment including;

  • Culture and Values
  • Player Retention
  • Youth Player Development Strategies
  • Club Structures
  • Coach Learning
  • And much much more.

Stay tuned to our Social Media Channels as the full list of speakers and topics will be announced over the coming weeks.



Cuala 4 Zambia and the Adult Hurling Section have joined forces to run the great Annual Cuala Quiz Night.

It will take place on Friday nightMay 5th in the Cuala Hall on Hyde Road.

Last year’s prize was carried off by the insanely clever and devilishly handsome crew of Michael Walsh, Rob Hartnett, Tim Carey  (who is dumping his teammates in favour of seeing Bruce Springsteen) and Sean O’Hara, with late assistance from Mick Murray.

More details to follow but save the date in your diaries now.


Another reminder to the songbirds, whistlers, dancers and rhythmic souls among us.
