Cú Chulainns Senior Hurling Head Coach/Manager Required

Cú Chulainns are looking for someone to take on the role of Head Coach/Manager for the season ahead. Selectors, Training coach, Kitman are all in place. We have been promoted to Senior for the year ahead after our clean sweep of Intermediate hurling in London in 2014 (4 out of 4). In addition to retaining our full squad from last season we have greatly strengthened our squad for the year ahead. Anybody who would be interested in working with the squad is asked to contact the club secretary (Joe Cashman – 07796985475). 

New Head Football Coach Appointed

The club would like to welcome our New Head Coach for the Season ahead. Tony Fayne a former Dublin Senior Football player brings a wealth of experience to the job. Tony has also previously coached underage, Intermediate & Senior football in Dublin with great success. We wish Tony and the players the best of luck for the season ahead.

Football Result & Fixtures

The football season kicked off on Sunday 22/03/15 in Montrose Park, in the Murphy Cup round 1 with Cú Chulainns losing out to Moindearg on a scoreline of 2.13 to 0.07. Cú Chulainns trailed 1.06 to 0.05 at half time but injuries to key players weakened the team as Moindearg ran out comfortable winners in the end. We would like to welcome all of the new players to the club who played their first of hopefully many games for the club and also thank the hurlers who togged out on the day. We play Heston Gaels on Sunday 29/03/15 at 4.30 in Greenford pitch 2 in round two with round 3 fixed for weekend of 11/12th April vs St. Josephs. All support as always is welcomed and appreciated.

Condolences to the Smith Family

by Cu Chulainns on March 9, 2015

We’d like to offer the family of Mattie Smith our condolences on the death of his father John two weeks ago in Moynalty, Co Meath. As most of you know Mattie is a long-time member of Cú Chulainns, as well as the former Chairman, Treasurer, PRO and county board delegate for the club over his many years of service to Cú Chulainns. Deepest sympathies from everybody associated with the Cú Chulainns to Mattie and his whole family.

Club Lotto New Rules

by Cu Chulainns on March 4, 2015

Cú Chulainns Club Lotto New Rules:
[these are being implemented this Saturday 7th March as it’s the start of a new game]

1. People who are more than £20 behind in lotto payments at the start of a new game will NOT be entered into that new game – they will be removed until they pay off what they owe in full and once they pay off what they owe in full they will then be eligible to be entered into the next game.

2. People who are removed from a new game because they are more than £20 behind will have the amount they owe frozen – for example, if at the end of the previous game you owe £28, then the amount you owe will stay at £28 as you will be out of the new game – then once you pay off that £28 in full you will be entered into the next available game [this rule is beneficial to everyone as it will prevent people from building up massive arrears].

3. People who are less than £20 behind in lotto payments at the start of a new game but are more than £20 behind by the end of that game WILL be allowed to stay in that game and WILL get paid out if they win.
