Hello Cuala Patrons,

Two huge games this weekend involving Cuala’s Martha Byrne and our senior hurlers. Time-travel or bilocation would be handy skills to have !

  • Good luck to Martha Byrne and the Dublin Ladies in the TG4 Ladies All Ireland Football Final this Sunday, also at 4pm.  Martha is the first Cuala lady to play at this level, having been selected for Dublin Ladies last year, and it`s the first time our club will have representation on the Dublin panel at an All Ireland Final. We are encouraging everyone to go and support Dublin Ladies and Martha.
  • Best of luck to our Senior Hurlers who face Ballyboden in the quarter finals of the Dublin SHC at 4pm on Sunday in O’Toole Park. We wish the lads and management the very best
  • Next Sunday sees the Minor A football team playing its first championship fixture against St. Vincents at Pairc Naomh Uinsionn at 11 am. The Minor Bs are at home in Dalkey at the same time. All support welcome.
  • We would like to extend our best wishes to young Darragh Spillane who will be sorely missed following his recent injury. Team and management wish him a speedy recovery.
  • Our adult camogie team made their long awaited return to senior championship last weekend against Ballinteer St John. Missing a number of key players due to injury the girls were up against it from the start but they went down fighting by 3-9 to 2-1.  This Sunday we play Craobh Ciaran in Meadowvale at 11am. As this is our first home championship game in 7 years as much support as possible is encouraged.
  • Cuala’s ‘Gaelic for Mothers & Others’  has been a great success in the club over the past 4 to 5 years however in more recent times numbers have dwindled and we are making one last effort to recruit new members. Training resumes this Wednesday in the Cuala Hall from 9pm to 10pm. No experience is required and beginners particularly welcome.
  • The U13 footballers recently went to the famous Austin Stacks Tournament in Tralee,  won their group  and got to the semi-final against the hosts only to lose out. A great experience for these young Cuala lads.

Enjoy the games.
