Cuala Senior Hurlers 2015

We are the Cuala Senior Hurling Team, based in Dalkey, Co. Dublin.

Your pledge will support our efforts to contest for the Dublin Senior Hurling Championship in 2015.

Our goal is to raise €10,000 and we need your help!

Our preparations started in the cold depths of winter, when the squad began a rigorous gym and fitness regime. The program was designed to bring the team to the physical standard required to compete with the top teams in the county. We progressed to grass field hurling training in late March, in preparation for the challenge facing us in May.

The Championship campaign began in early May. We were drawn to face Ballinteer St. Johns, Lucan Sarsfields and Faughs in a fiercely competitive group.

After two hard won games against Ballinteer St. Johns and Lucan Sarsfields, we now face Faughs in our final group game. The remaining group game has been our main focus for the summer months.

With a bit of luck, if we can get past an excellent Faughs team, we will be looking forward to contesting the Quarter Finals of the Dublin Senior Hurling Championship 2015.

Our typical summer training week consists of:

  • Monday – Individual Gym Session
  • Tuesday – Collective Hurling Session
  • Wednesday – Recovery
  • Thursday – Collective Gym Session
  • Friday – Recovery
  • Saturday – Collective Light Hurling Session / Recovery
  • Sunday – Collective Hurling Session / Game

As you can appreciate, running a group of 30+ players and management has necessary associated costs.

Our running costs are split between:

  • Facilities Rent (Pitches / Gym)
  • Coaching
  • Equipment
  • Transport

We estimate, over a full hurling season, a €1,000 cost per player.

Please pledge to our cause, become an official Cuala Senior Hurlers Supporter or pledge to win some of our excellent prizes!

With your support, we will have the best opportunity to reach our maximum potential.

Your pledge is greatly appreciated,

The Cuala Senior Hurlers
