Well the season is in the latter stages now but this is a big weekend for the U15 boys and Intermediate footballers. If you don’t often go to games , well, consider getting out this weekend to the games below.
We are known for our support as a club – that means we all support each other. Lets make it happen people:
A big weekend ahead for the juvenile girls teams with no fewer than 5 Cuala teams playing in Championship or Shield finals or semi finals. The 1996s (U14s) play Raheny Gaels on Saturday in a camogie Shield final and Scoil Ui Chonaill on Sunday in the football Shield semi final. The 1997s (U13s) play Lucan Sarsfields on Saturday in their football shield semi final and the 1998s (U12s) play Foxrock Cabinteely on Sunday in their football Championship semi final while the 1999s (U11s) play Naomh Mearnog on Saturday in their camogie Shield semi final. Best wishes to all the girls and their mentors.
It’s another big weekend for the Cuala Gaelic4Mothers after their successful outing in Croke Park a few weekends ago. They have entered two 12 a-side teams in the All Ireland Gaelic4Mothers Football Blitz being hosted by Naomh Mearnog. Over 50 teams from across Ireland will take part in a full day of matches.
The 2-10 to 1-10 win by the Cuala U16 girls last week ensured a three-way tie on points for the top place in the Championship Group. At the Co Board a draw was made to determine the winner which went FoxCab’s way. So it was Cuala v Skerries Harps all over again in Hyde Pk. Last week’s slim 1 goal win was not repeated as the girls took control from the off and ran out 4-13 to 0-8 at the whistle. So we’re off to St Sylvester’s for the semi’s on Sunday. Good Luck.
The U12A footballers finished off their Division One title winning campaign with a two point victory under floodlights at Ballinteer St John’s on Tuesday night. They won all seven of their League games this season and finished four points clear of Ballyboden St Enda’s at the head of the table.Well done to the 36 mentors and coaches who will graduate this Thursday from the Level One coaching course run over the past six weeks by the Coaching department. The future of the Juvenile groups are in seemingly good hands.
The Cuala U15A’s dream of Championship double remains alive following their emphatic 4-13 to 1-6 victory over Ballyboden St. Endas in the U15 Hurling Championship Semi Final in Shankill last Sunday Morning. The team’s Mentors would like to thank the Cuala faithful for the huge turnout to support the lads. The victory sees them face Na Fianna in the County Final on October 31st Venue T.B.C.
This Sunday the U15A Footballers are in the Football County final, where they will face Ballyboden St. Endas (All Ireland Feile Champions 2009) in Craobh Chiarán’s Clonshaugh grounds. All support welcome.
The U15B hurlers were unlucky to be beaten in extra time of their Shield Semi Final against St Peregrines. This Sunday they face St Vincents B’s in Thomastown at 11:30.
It’s a Big weekend for our Adult footballers as they go in search of the Intermediate Championship title and of course promotion to Senior Football championship ranks. Its nearly 30 years since Cuala contested this Final , beating Man O War in 1981. And as usual there are many family links. Leader of the attack on the 2010 team ” young Johnny Sheanon” had 2 Uncles on the ’81 team , The stylish Johnny Snr and corner back “Uncle Gerry”. Marc Schutte also had 2 uncles on the 81 ream , Vinnie and PJ Holden , and amazingly the team in 1981 was managed by Pete “The Butcher” Dunne and his son Derek is now at the helm of the 2010 team. The team of 2010 have shown great skill , heart and oodles of flair to get to this stage. The club are hoping that our club supporters will be in Parnell Park this Sunday at 2.15 in large numbers to cheer on the lads on what would be a significant step forward for the club. Reminder it’s Parnell Park 2.15pm Oct 17. Intermediate Championship final Cuala v St Brigids.
