Cuchulainn rounders club minor women and mixed brought All Ireland glory back to the club for the first time in five years.
They took on Limekiln of Dublin in the all Ireland finals on Monday the 3 rd of August in Tymon park Tallaght.

The women’s team were first up and produces a stunning team effort. The teams were level going into the final innings but with some strong batting they won the game and secured the silverware.

The mixed game was also a tight affair with plenty of big hits and big catches from both teams. The young Cuchulainn Men and Women held their nerve to secured the second title for the club.
Its been a very successful year for Cuchulainn GAA rounders club with the senior mixed team also making the All Ireland finals hoping to finish off the year another trophy.


Cuchulainn rounders under age boys and girls have been busy the last few weeks, our under 12 boys and girls got the  opportunity to play GAA Rounders Go Games in Croke Park on Tuesday the 14th of July.
A great day was had by all a big thanks to all who took part and to parents and committee members who traveled on the day. Al so a massive thanks to everyone in Croke park for organising the day.
We held our annual under 13 girls competition in Ballon GAA pitch on Sunday the 19th which saw our girls win the competition outright, With wins over Bagenalstown and their long standing rivals The Heath. The club was delighted to see this great bunch of girls winning our own Tournament making a great day that little bit more special. Again a big thanks to all involved from coaches to tea makers and everyone in between.

It’s been a busy few weeks in Cuchulainn rounders club so here’s a summery.

Our senior Men and Women have had good results on the pitch lately.

The men’s team have finally started to gel together with wins over Green Hills,  Erne  Eagles and Carrickmacross putting them back in contention for a place in the semi finals.

The women too have turned their season around despite missing three experienced players through injury wins over Ballintubber and Clonaslee has put them in touching distance of a place in the semis.

Our under 13 boys and girls played their Feile held in Dublin on Sunday the 28th of June, the Boys put in a good performance wining  two of their four matches leaving them in third position overall all.

The girls reached the final beating Limekillin of Dublin in a semi final that was surely the best game of rounders ever played by any juvenile Cuchulainn team, unfortunately loosing out in the final to a very strong Heath team.

Keep an eye on Facebook for our up coming events and games, remember we train and play our home games in Ballon GAA pitch so if your interested in GAA rounders come over and say hello.
