Cartlann Digiteach Cualahist_Boxing_thumb likes attics. And if there’s one thing we like even more – it’s people who rummage in attics and bring newly discovered material to our attention. So we were delighted to hear from James Brady when he drew our attention to a 1970’s Souvenir Programme for Dalkey Boxing Club, or to give it its correct title – Dalkey Physical Recreation and Boxing Club. It was discovered in an attic in St Begnets Villas. “What’s this to do with Cuala?” we hear you ask. Well, it might not fit neatly with the history of our club but it sure does give a useful insight into the history of our premises and the people and business that supported it in times past.

The handover of the Hall to Cuala was the subject of a previous posting.
