Martha Byrne and Jennifer Dunne have been named to start in the Dublin team for Sunday’s TG4 All Ireland Ladies Football Final, with Rachel Hartnett on the bench.

Dublin are bidding for a fifth title in a row, with a young and vibrant Meath side standing in their way.

Tickets have been selling like fury across the county boundary but there are still some tickets available and it would be great to get a strong Cuala presence in Croke Park to support the girls.  If you would have gone to a Men’s final then do the right thing and bring along daughters, and sons, to see our stars of 2021.

Tickets are available here 


It’s that time of year with the Senior Club Championships getting underway.  It’s the Senior Hurling Championship on Saturday with our A and B teams taking to the field in the top two levels.

The first team are up against old rivals Kilmacud Croke’s in Parnell Park at 6 PM, bidding to win the title for the sixth time in seven years.  On two occasions this journey led all the way to the All Ireland title.

Tickets in Advance available here

The Seconds playing Ballyboden St Enda’s at the same time at Sancta Maria.

The Thirds play Realt Dearg in the Junior A Championship in Shanganagh at 6 PM, also on Saturday.

The Fourths are also at home, listed as Hyde Park on Sunday at 11 against Castleknock.

Rounding off the action the fifths make their Championship bow in the Junior H with a 3 PM Throw-in at Shanganagh Park on Sunday.

Watch out in that fifth’s game for what could be a bit of history.  Tim Carey will be hoping to make his Adult hurling Championship debut at the tender age of a mere 53 years old.   He scored in a challenge match last week, but growing up in Milwaukee, baseball was more his thing.  We will be watching the wires, Tim.

The Camogie First Team will travel to Erin’s Isle on Sunday morning for their opening match in the Senior 2 Championship


Well done to all those who got their Leaving Cert Results today.  To those who got what they wanted, congratulations, you deserved it.  To those though for whom the news was not what they wanted, there are many paths that you can follow to get to where you want.  Draw a breath, talk to those who matter most and you will figure out a way.


The drama last week!  Our Fourth Footballers secured the AFL D11 South after the game finished 1-11 to 2-08 after extra time in Hyde Park.

Down to Penalties then and the lads must have been secretly practising for just such an eventuality as they ran out 3-1 winners.



The next generation of Cuala players will get their first taste next Saturday 11th September with the Boys at 0900 and the girls at 1015.

All are welcome to join so please spread the word to friends.

Registration of interest in advance of next Saturday, so we can plan for numbers, can be done here.


Cuala have been given two stand tickets for the All Ireland Men’s Final and you must have a lifelong friend from mayo or Tyrone that would love you forever if you won them for them.

Good luck.


Registration is open for this year’s hugely popular TY courses.  An initial meeting will take place on Friday next, 10th September at the club at 5 PM, for about 60-90 minutes.

Good luck to the Minor Boy’s Footballers who are all in Championship action on Sunday, A’s against Judes in Hyde Park at 1100, B’s and C’s against Maurs and Round Towers also throwing in at 11 in Shanganagh.

Cuala 2005 boys under 16’s A and B teams start their 2021 hurling championship this Saturday the 4th of September.

Cuala A Division One A hurling championship Home match at 3.30 pm in Shanganagh v Na Fianna.
Cuala B Division E championship away in Marley Park at 2.00 pm V  Ballinteer St Johns.

The Girls Camogie Championship starts as well with Cuala up against Lucan Sarsfileds at Meadowvale on Sunday morning with a 10:30 AM Throw-in.

Well done to the U15 and U16 Girls last week who got the football started with three wins and a draw.  The U16 A’s was a nerve shredder coming through by a single point against Kilmacud Crokes.

The Third Camogie team recorded a big win over Kilmacud Crokes at Meadowvale during the week, and were matched by the Fourth’s who did likewise against Fingallians.

The Minor Women’s A Footballers drew with Fingallians in D2 on Monday while the B’s had a long trip to Man O’War but came back empty-handed.

Hard luck to the 2020 Minor Boys who lost out in their Championship Final one year after it should have been played.


With the kids back to school there may be a fresh run on masks.  Why not deck them out in club colours for only a fiver.
