Cuala Patrons,

It’s show time for our Senior and Juvenile stars over the coming days with plenty of top class action to get yourself along to in what will hopefully be balmy sunshine.

  • The Senior Hurlers get the Championship underway on Saturday afternoon in a rematch of last years QF against Craobh Chiarain.  Throw in is at 4.30pm in O’Toole Park.  The Journey to Parnell Park and who knows where else begins this weekend.
  • Hard luck to the lads who went down to Ballyboden in last Friday night’s semi final of the Leinster League.  Building nicely though for these Championship days ahead.
  • The action comes thick and fast at this time of year and the footballers are back in the big tim on Wednesday night.  The first round of the Senior Football Championship pitches us against St Vincents, only the recent winners of the All Ireland Championship but you only get better by playing with the big guns so off we go.  It’s a local game for Vincents so all support for the lads will be warmly welcomed.  Throw in at 7-45.
  • The lads warmed up well last Saturday night in Dalkey with a big win over Fingallians in a rematch of last year’s Intermediate Championship Final.
  • Well done also to the Minor A Footballers who scored a good win over Lucan Sarsfields.
  • Both of the Minor Hurling teams are away this weekend with trips to Na Fianna and Naomh Iosolde.
  • Monday night was the Minor Ladies last league match and it was certainly one to remember. The girls took on Naomh Maur’s in Rush who were 2nd in the league. The home team got off to a much better start than us and at half time we trailed 2-4 to 1 point.  The second half though was all Cuala. The girls put in a great performance but did go down by three points. The mentors are very proud of the girls spirit and team effort. Everyone of them played their hearts out.
  • At Juvenile level this weekend is one of the highlights of the year with the Football Féile coming to town. This year it is the turn of the 99’s to represent the Club . The A’s are based at home in Thomastown and the B’s are travelling to Collinstown. The fund raising is done, the training drawn to a close it is now down to the lads and the football. We wish them well and we know they will represent the Club with pride and passion.  What they need now is all of our support . Games at 10.30, 11.30 and 12.30 before hopefully a semi final in the afternoon and maybe a final on Sunday.  Pack the sandwiches and come out and support the 99‘s. There can be hardly a better way to spend a  Bank Holiday weekend . Good luck lads and enjoy the day.
  • The Feile journey is over for the u14 girls but what a journey it was.  The girls and their mentors would like to thank everyone who helped then on their way.  Whether it was with fund raising or coaching or just cheering us on;  we thank you all sincerely.  We would also like to wish the boys all the best in their Feile. We hope you enjoy the games and bring another Feile trophy to Cuala in 2013.
  • Good luck to Jack Hartnett, Daniel Johnson, Thomas McCarthy and Daniel Johnson representing Dublin South U15 Development Squad against Wicklow on Saturday.
  • Congratulations to all our young members who were in action for their schools at Croke Park over the last couple of days at the Cumman na mBunscoil Finals.  Magic memories and a special well done to the sixth class girls of Scoil Lorcáin who completed what may well be a unique football and Camogie double when landing the Corn Haughey.  Here is a piece which captures how special these days are for the kids and their parents.  It’s part of what we are.
  • Great to see more than 50 Cuala Girls from U8 and U10 in action last Sunday morning at Glenalbyn in blitz action against Kilmacud Crokes.  Very bright future for the girls.
  • The Cuala shop have some weekend special offers available this Saturday morning the 4th of May.  Come down, drop in and see the specials for yourself, bargains at rock bottom prices not to be repeated.

It’s a bit busy, isn’t it.

Have a great Weekend.
