It’s considered polite when having friends ’round to dinner that you bring out the best silverware. The annual Friends of Dublin Hurling Awards night, held on Friday 18th Nov., was no exception.  It was a great opportunity for young Cuala stars to meets their more experienced counterparts.  Here we see (L to R) Oisin Gough, David Treacy  Paul Schütte & Mark Schütte with Scoil Uí Chonaill’s Larry Shannon – pictured below with Dublin in the All Ireland Final from 1961.   No doubt Larry will have given the Cuala boys a lot of helpful advice and encouragement being, as he was, the manager of the last Cuala team to win  the Dublin Senior Hurling Championship back in 1994.
