Dublin hurling club pushing the boat out to reach pledge target of €10k
Cuala GAA club are pushing the boat out, literally, as well as enlisting the help of models in order to raise the money needed to fund their championship costs.
Cuala Senior Hurling Team, based in Dalkey, Co. Dublin, are hoping the costs will cover all the preparations for the championship season and are undertaking a number of activities to reach a target of €10,000.
Michael Fitzsimons, a member of the victorious All-Ireland winning football panel was joined by Dublin full-back Cian O'Callaghan and fellow Dubs team-mate Mark Schutte among others from the 40ft as they braved the waters with the help of two models.
The club are looking for people to pledge money for dates with players, for training sessions given by our county players, for signed balls and jerseys which are all listed on the pledge site right here.
Cuala estimate that over the course of a full season, each player will cost in the region of €1,000 each.
