Our History

Dunleary O’Connells – Junior Football Winners 1911

Dunleary O'Connells  is another of those Clubs whos very existence has been largely forgotten. Although not known to have any direct connection with the modern Cuala club, Cartlann Digiteach Cuala feels this forum is a fitting place to record what is known of this once powerful club in what has since become the Cuala heartland.

Hyde Road Pitch Opening – 1989

Cartlann Digiteach Cuala previously reported on the wonderful efforts made to develop our pitch at Hyde Park. Of course no such undertaking would have been complete without a suitable celebration and what better way than to have the country's finest players put the pitch to the test in a challenge match in the presence of Cuala members and friends.

Comhar Cualann – So Little Time (So Much to Do).

Cartlann Digiteach Cuala  occasionally likes to look over our historical fence to better understand what our neighbours were up to back in the day. We, like many others, would have shared a belief that there was not much going on in the locality…

Johnson set the perfect pitch

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.
