The Cuala Spirit is Winning!
The fundraising team has been in overdrive over the past couple of weeks and it’s fantastic to see so many club members fully engaged in Cuala Stradbrook. We think every parent on the sideline in Hyde Park, Thomastown and Meadowvale received information on Saturday. There will be plenty more activity over the next few weeks, including a running total of the donations collected so far on the outside wall of Hyde Park! We plan to track our progress all the way to the magic number. There have been many questions from people regarding the details of the project. We have now compiled a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document which addresses the top questions we have received.

The Around 50% of people are now choosing to donate by this method. Overall our median donation is now €2,000 – we are very happy to receive more from people who can and want to donate more.

Some of the members who donated this week include…
“We have donated because Cuala is “Our” club, “Our” teams, “Our” players. It gives our Family a real sense of belonging, in a community that has a passion for camogie, hurling and football. Cuala has given our children health, fitness, happiness and friendships that will last a lifetime. Tá Cuala an club is fearr.”
The Sheridan Family
“I’m giving to the Cuala Stradbrook fundraising because I believe this project offers a great opportunity for the Cuala teams to play and train in the one location with top class facilities. I have a girl in the 02’s and a boy in the 05’s and it is great seeing them both grow up enjoying themselves with their friends and learning lots of new skills. My wife Niamh and I are both with Academy and Juvenile teams and are constantly reminded both in Cuala and when we visit other clubs of just how inadequate the current facilities are. Opportunities like this don’t come around very often, so we are delighted to donate and look forward to seeing all of our kids continue to grow and develop in an environment we can all be proud of and helped to create”
