Hello Cuala Patrons

An All Ireland final that brought out the defibrillators and all to be done again.  And excitement building for  the football final Sunday week!

  • On Saturday the Under 12 girls (2001s) had two Camogie teams playing at home to Raheny. They performed excellently, winning both matches to stay in second place in Division 1 two points behind Lucan.  On Sunday the same girls had two Football teams playing away to Na Fianna and again the girls played excellently and won both matches.
  • This weekend our Under 13 (2000s) footballers take part in the annual Austin Stacks tournament in Tralee. This tournament sees clubs from all over Ireland take part in a 2-day festival of football. The Cuala lads are in a group with no less than An Gaelteacht and Austin Stacks from Kerry and Na Piarsaigh from Cork. Win, lose or draw it promises to be a great weekend for the 2000s lads and we are sure they will represent the club with pride and enjoy the experience.
