Cartlann Digiteach Cuala loves attics. And when the attic in question belongs to a former Chairman who played a major role in developing one of Cuala's most important facilities, we know we're in for a treat. So we were delighted to hear from Tommy Johnson (Chairman 1987-1989) who has shared with us his many interesting notes and images from this important period.

The formal Cuala story can be traced from records of games in the area in the late-19th century and on through a variety of mergers, off-shoots, 'rests' and ressurections involving local clubs like Cuala Hurling Club, Naomh Mhuire, St Begnet's, Dalkey Mitchell's, Roger Casements and Cuala Boys. All of these clubs are part of the great Cuala journey - their history and that of the modern club are inseparable.

The sinking of the RMS Leinster in 1918 - to be commemorated shortly - was by far the worst loss of life in Irish Waters. Of the 550+ casualties, 21 Post Office mail sorters lost their lives. Many of the postal workers are understood to have come from the Kingstown (Dún Laoghaire) area and it has been reported that some were members of local GAA clubs. We wonder might there be families out there who know more?

Cuala members with an appreciation of the history of the club will be interested in this Summer School taking place at the end of August in Dun Laoghaire. One of the constituent clubs making up the Cuala family was called Cuala Casements (1967 - 1974), previously Roger Casements (1966 - 67) in recognition of the patriot's association with nearby Sandycove, his birthplace in 1864. Cathaoirleach Cuala, Damian McKeown has been invited to participate in the event. Both he and Cartlann Digiteach Cuala are interested in hearing stories of those amalgamations from anyone involved at the time.
