Historic video show Cuala in Phoenix Park

Every so often, Cartlann Digiteach Cuala re-discovers a real gem. This is one of them.  We are grateful to Damien Byrne & Ken Fitzgerald for drawing out attention to this delightful video which was part of a programme made by the late Eamonn MacThomáis (a renowned Dublin historian).  In this programme, he focussed on the history of the Phoenix Park but also featured some ‘present day’ activities.

In it, we see some very familiar faces as Cuala Hurlers take on Eoghan Ruadh (now St. Oliver Plunkett/Eoghan Ruadh, Navan Road)

Many thanks to Colman O’Murchu for confirming that this was in late summer 1981; he should know, he came on as a sub on the day.
