OUR U14 hurlers did themselves and the club proud in the Feile over the weekend, where the Division Four grouping was hosted in Sean Moore Park. They won all three of their group games with comprehensive wins over Parnell's and Naomh Fionnbarra and a narrower one-goal victory over Rialto Gaels. Though all games were played in very difficult wet conditions, play at all times exemplified the good spirit and purpose of this Tournament. In topping their group, our lads retained home advantage for their semi-final game against Naomh Olaf. They dominated much of that game, especially when they would have been least expected to, playing against a strong wind in the second half. They built up a deserved 1-2 lead, only to see the Olaf's centre back single-handedly rescue his team with two excellent solo runs and goals to claim a two-point win in the end. Well done to the players and team mentors on a great Tournament. And great credit is due to the wider group of volunteers, who worked tirelessly to make our hosting the event such a success. Congratulations to Clanns player, Maria O'Dea, and the Dublin U16s on their win over Westmeath in the Leinster Championship. Maria was on the scoresheet and helped the Dubs secure a place in the Leinster Final against Meath.
TEAM of the Week goes to our U12B footballers for a great league win over Trinity Gaels. Losing by 7 points at the break, they stormed back to win by 4, with Man of the Match going to the superb Conor McGarry. Well done to both our Hurling Feile teams, who played in terrible weather conditions, in both Castleknock and St Pat's Palmerstown. Its Championship time again.

TWO good wins for our U16 girls this week. They played St Peregrine's on Wednesday in Hyde Park and scored a massive 7-17 against a strong opposition, who scored 4-5. The girls were back in action on Sunday in Meadowvale against Na Fianna, who were level with them on league points. The Cuala team fought hard and despite being down at half-time, they finished victorious on a score line of 2-12 to 2-9. Girls and mentors would like to wish the injured Na Fianna girl a swift recovery. Hard luck to our Féile A hurlers, who lost to a strong St Brigid's side in the Division 3 final. They still go through to the regional finals in Ulster. The Feile B hurlers did very well too in atrocious conditions in Thomastown. Winning both their group games to top the group, they faced a strong Lucan side in the semi-final. Despite some Trojan work from 1 to 15, they couldn't catch Lucan, who had built up a strong first-half lead. All the lads played great hurling all weekend and did Cuala and their families proud.
