Well done to all the Cuala girls who took part in the Camogie blitz in the Phoenix Park last weekend. 40 teams took part including two from Cuala. Our U8 team performed very well considering they were up against three U9 teams in their group, while our U9 team won their group beating Kilmacud Crokes in the deciding game. We will be entering U10, U11 and U12 camogie and ladies football teams in leagues next year so anyone with daughters, nieces or sisters born in 1996, 1997 and 1998 who might be interested in playing camogie and ladies football next year please contact Fintan at 086-8197352. Next year’s U11’s (born in 1997) are particularly looking for new players.

Congratulations to Cillian O’Séanáin, Eoghan O’Naoire, Seán O’Dúlaing and Dáithi O’Murchú from the Cuala U11s and U12s, and all pupils in Scoil Lorcáin who represented Dublin in hurling in Croke Park under lights last Saturday night in the Cumann na mBunscoil match at half-time in the Interprovincial Hurling Championship Finals.
