1967 was an extraordinary year for Dalkey Mitchell’s. The Club (that had been born in 1959 as “St. Begnett’s”, and which had adopted its new name just 5 years earlier in ’62) won its first ever Junior Hurling Championship. It was to be the start of a terrific run of form. The following year saw them secure the Intermediate Hurling Championship and the year after that, ’69, they had achieved Senior status. Add another 5 years to the timeline and Dalkey Mitchell’s would be taking another bold step forward – an amalgamation with Cuala Casements/Naomh Mhuire to form the great club we know today as Cuala.
The range of material surrounding the historic win – newspaper cuttings, the Ó Maoláin Album and even a specially composed song – give us a sense of the excitement and achievement involved. A truly wonderful inheritance to inspire today’s players.
Cartlann Digiteach Cuala (Cuala Digital Archive) was established in 2009 to assemble an on-line archive of images, stories and memorabilia relating to Cuala and its ‘ancestral’ clubs.
