Our History

Historic overview

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.

Cuala Hurlers 1920 – and our very first Match Report
