Cuala’s membership year runs from Jan to Dec.
Family Subscriptions depend on the number of players but are capped at €550.00 and cover –
- up to two Full (Adult) Members. (NB payment alone is not a substitute for applying for Membership
- unlimited Juveniles (U18)
- unlimited Students (18+ in full time education, no upper age limit)
- where all are living in the same ‘household’ (& includes students studying away from home)
Where does my Subscription go?
The Annual Subscription is used to contribute towards a wide range of services and activities on and off the field. For 2016, our costs worked out at an average of €303 per player as this breakdown shows –
As you can see, Subscriptions alone do not cover the full costs. We rely on Members, Sponsors and supporters engaging in Fundraising to make up the difference.
Only paid-up Members are permitted to be involved in the “management” of teams – basically any activity that involves supervising or directing player activity including training, matches, away trips and social events. Parents and supporters who are not members are, of course, welcome and indeed depended upon to assist club activities by giving lifts, doing “the wash”, pitch marking, net management, player encouragement etc.
All Cuala activity, home and away, must always be conducted under the direction of an appointed Cuala official.

Only fully paid-up members are entitled to use any of the clubs facilities (including the Bar), represent the club in any capacity (e.g. Board Delegate, team mentor, referee etc.) or participate in the decision making processes within the club (e.g. as a member of the Coiste, Sub-Committees or at the Annual General Meeting). Full details of the rights and duties of members are set out in the Club Constitution
Annual Subscriptions tendered by anyone who is not already a member of the club will be accepted and treated as a donation – pending their Application for Membership being processed. In the event of admission as a Member, any sums previously donated will be credited against Annual Subscription due.
