Congratulations to all the players on our Senior Hurling squad, their manager Mattie Kenny and his management team on winning back to back All Ireland Senior Hurling Club Championships. Cuala are only the fifth club in history to perform that feat. It took 150 minutes plus injury time of hurling to separate Cuala and a fantastic Na Piarsaigh side. Truly a titanic battle. We are blessed to have such a group of players within the club, they are wonderful role models for our younger players. Their achievements and behaviour on and off the pitch over the last number of years are also testament to the huge work put in by coaches of juvenile teams over many years.

Many thanks to all those who gave their time and enegy (too many to mention names) to organise the pre-match festivities in the hall on both final days, the trains to Connolly and Portlaoise and the post match receptions last Saturday and Sunday. Your work was very much appreciated by all in the club.

Huge thanks also to those who’ve supported the team during the year including  Davy, Huawei, Home Instead, Newpark Service Station, Rationel Windows+Doors and Teamwear.ie.
