Cuala members with an appreciation of the history of the club will be interested in this Summer School taking place at the end of August in Dun Laoghaire. One of the constituent clubs making up the Cuala family was called Cuala Casements (1967 – 1974), previously Roger Casements (1966 – 67) in recognition of the patriot’s association with nearby Sandycove, his birthplace in 1864. Cathaoirleach Cuala, Damian McKeown has been invited to participate in the event. Both he and Cartlann Digiteach Cuala are interested in hearing stories of those amalgamations from anyone involved at the time.
Cuala has a limited number of tickets for the Super 8 fixture between Tyrone & Dublin in Healy Park Omagh on Saturday. If you would like to attend, you’ll need to register your interest with us.
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.
I’m sure I speak for everyone in Cuala when I welcome the appointment of Na Fianna’s John Horan as Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael. I have today written to John to congratulate him on his election – the first Dubliner in 97 years – and to wish his well in his new role. I also expressed the hope that his first official match duty in Croke Park will be the presentation of a trophy to a Dublin Club!
