Sunday is the big day in GAA calendar, Cork have been in the last 4 semi-finals- Down have never lost a final – it should be a good day at HQ on Sunday. I’m sure it will be well aired at the Cuala Corporate lunch tomorrow

Well done to the U12A footballers who beat old rivals St Judes in the gathering gloom at Tymon Park last Friday night. The lads now require one point from their last two games to be crowned as Division One Champions.

The Juvenile Boys are currently debating the important issues of team and player selection. To make your views known contact rob@hartnettpr.ie for a copy of the discussion documents or talk with your team mentors. Dont foget the All-Ireland Forecast sheets for the big game on Sunday.

Well done to the U15 (1995’s) A Hurlers on beating Ballyboden in the last match of the league last Sunday and finishing in 2nd Place. This weekend it’s Football Champoinship action where the A’s are away to Sylvesters and the B’s are away to Vincents.

On Saturday the under 16’s beat Kilmacud Crokes in their Hurling championship game at Silverpark. An early goal gave Cuala a lead they never relinquished. At half time it was 1-3 to 0-4 and the same margin separated the sides at the conclusion 1-7 to 0-8. This was team effort from all the team including the U15’s who all displayed great courage and conviction and there can be little argument that the best team won. Ballyboden await in the semi final on the 25th September.

As you all know the Cuala Corporate lunch takes place tomorrow.

Fox turns and sprints for goal, the dog ran a great race last Tuesday in Limerick. Fox to the 21 fires a shot, it goes to the left and wide……and the dog lost as well.” “Sean Óg o Hailpín….his father’s from Fermanagh, his mother’s from Fiji, neither a hurling stronghold. “It promises to be a great day with a few tales out of school !! Tables still available – just call the Cuala office.
