Damien Byrne, SSIP Manager, has just announced the launch of Cuala’s very own Men’s Shed.

Open every Friday, 11 – 2 starting 10 Feb
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’s Sports & Social Integration Project is exploring the possibility of setting up a Men’s Shed for the local area. If you have any experience of setting up a men’s shed or are just interested in helping, Damian Byrne would like to hear from you.
