*** There are always winners and losers in sport.  Our senior hurlers have given us more than most clubs could ever dream of but last Sunday the magical run that included three Dublin titles, two Leinster and two All Ireland's came to an end, for now.  There is a great anonymous appreciation of what the last few years have been like on the website.  Worth a read...
 

*** Hard luck also to our Adult Camogie team who went down in their first foray into the Leinster Championship but not without a great fight, at the end of a magnificent season.
 

*** Our Intermediate and Junior B Hurlers both won at the weekend to set up County Finals of their own in the coming weeks.  Remarkably both sides won by an identical minimum scoreline of 1-17 to 2-13.  There is a strong pipeline coming through.

*** We are back in Parnell Park this Sunday when our Senior Footballers take on Thomas Davis in the Semi Final of the Senior 2 Championship.  It will be a tough game but the lads are in great form.  Throw in is at 2-15pm 

*** Heartbreak for our Minor Footballers last weekend.  The A's went out to Whitehall Colmcilles in their A Championship semi-final.  Leading by a point seven minutes into injury time, Whitehall somehow conjured a goal to win by the slimmest of margins.  The B's also went down at the same stage.  Shame for the lads but a great season.

*** Our Junior Footballers are at home to Garda on Sunday in the Semi Final of their Championship.  If you can't make it to Parnell Park make sure you do the shorter journey to Hyde Park for a 3 PM thrown in.  Seanie McMahon and Paul Cahill will be on the sideline and looking for loud support...

 
All nine of our September All Ireland winners will be in Cuala on Saturday morning together with three very special trophies last seen in public in the Hogan Stand at Croke Park after three All Ireland Finals.

Come along for pictures, chat, autographs and more 

Buy yourself Coffee and a Cake while the kids are running around and help raise money for a very special cause in Down Syndrome Ireland.
YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE CUALA COMMUNITY HUB

Thanks for a very strong response to the survey of members in relation to the Community Hub - Cuala Club House.

There were some very interesting and well thought out suggestions. Thanks to all.

We are still open to receiving more input, and would particularly welcome younger members of the club to give us their views. 
  There is a meeting on Monday 22nd at 7.30pm (location TBC) to consider the feedback and draft a design specification.

We would encourage players, parents, mentors, younger members, and everyone else with an interest in the future of the club to attend this meeting - please send an email to cormacot1@gmail.com if you intend to join so that the right location for the meeting can be booked based upon the expected number of attendees.



THE CUALA CHOIR

The Choir is back after a solid start pre-summer.  There are all sorts of ambitious plans for the group who will be back at Glasthule Parish Hall this Sunday, October 10th at 7-30.  All are welcome to join the 25 or so that are involved to date.

Championship

The Cuala U16 Hurlers Take on Raheny in the Semi Final of the B Hurling Championship on Saturday Afternoon.  Come on down to Shanganagh and cheer along the lads if you can.

It was a mixed weekend of semi-finals for our Juvenile Ladies footballers. On Saturday, the U13 As lost to St Sylvester's in the Division 2 Shield but their B's defeated Raheny to book a place in the Division 8 Shield final.

On Sunday, the U14 As lost to Lucan in the Division 1 Championship while the Bs also lost, toO’Tooles in Division 4.

Later on the same day
the U16 As won 8-10 to 4-8 and will play Fingal Ravens in the Div 4 final while their Bs lost 5-6 to 7-14 against St Mary's in Div 5.

There was a great atmosphere at Hyde Road last weekend for the big welcome session for new Academy players.

Lots of activity and lots of excitement around the place.  You are all very welcome to the start of what we hope will be a long and happy stay in Cuala.

There is a special deal on for gumshields with our friends at the Specialist Orthodontic Practice in Glenageary.  Quote Cuala GAA and you’ll get a special deal on a custom fit.  And remember no gumshields no train, no play so never let your boys and girls go training or to matches without them...
