Cartlann Digiteach Cuala is delighted to announce the acquisition of a wide-ranging set of photographs and news clippings courtesy of Bridie Dunphy . This 1974 image is of a presentation to mark a wonderful season for the Minors (who finished top of the Dublin Minor Football League) and to honour the achievements of their manager, the late Mick Dunphy.
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.
The Cuala Monthly (“Top for Sport”) was produced in 1971 /72 by the Cuala Youth Committee. It makes for fantastic reading today if only to show how much things have changed and how much has stayed the same
