Hello Cuala Patrons,

Nearly St.Patrick’s Day already with frost in the air and snow on the ground. It certainly took its toll on the fixtures last week and the news this week!

  • Under 13A Footballers secured Division 1 status for the year ahead with a comfortable win over Skerries Harps. Special mention for Tadhg Quinn who played the match on his Confirmation Day … great dedication! With the Holy Spirit on side, the 2000s lads had their own 16th man! Hope you made a few bob as well Tadhg.
  • Its nearly Easter Camp time again. Details of registration and schedule are on the Cuala website.
  • The Senior Hurlers had a good result in the Leinster League v St Mullins Carlow  which they won 1-08 to 1-06 in dreadful conditions in Hyde Park last Saturday. First competitive outing of the year. They play a challenge game next Monday 18th at 2:00pm v Oulart the Ballagh in Wexford if anyone wants to go for a drive and stick in a match we’d love the support.  Championship draws will be posted here: http://bit.ly/14OML4E
  • The Sports and Social Integration Project will be commencing a pilot sports course within the club. As this is a pilot course it will be limited to 12 places. The course will commence on the 27th March and will be open to all members who are on the Under 16 teams upwards. It is proposed to hold the course between the times of 4.45pm to 6.30pm as to avoid clashing with school / training schedules etc. The course is designed to give young people, who may be interested in a career in sport, teaching or health, some understanding of what is involved in such a career path.    The course will consists of the following modules.
    1. Foundation Course / Award 1 Child
    2. Sports/Health Psychology
    3. Planning a Training Session
    4. Building Physical Skills
    5. Group Dynamics / Challenging Behaviour
    6. Sport Injuries / First Aid
    7. Diet and NutritionAnyone interested then please contact Damian Byrne (aka John Travolta) on Ph: 086-6040998,  or e-mail: cualassip@gmail.com
  • And lastly, the annual Cuala St.Patricks Day Céilí takes place in the Hall on Sunday night at 7pm. If you are still feeling lively after all that parading and shamrock, wearing -its a great evening of music and entertainment for young and old.

Have a good Paddy’s Day!
