Dualla National School is located in the parish of Boherlahan Dualla, which is about 5km from the town of Cashel. There are three primary schools in the parish. The majority of children in
these schools play their hurling and Gaelic Football with the renowned Boherlahan Dualla GAA club. Boherlahan Dualla is a club that is steeped in GAA History. The club has won 16 County Senior Hurling Titles. The club won some of these titles under different names; Tubberadora/Suir View/Ballytarsna/Boherlahan-Dualla. Tubberadora is famous the length and breadth of Ireland for the contributions the players on its team made to the GAA when the association was in its infancy. There is a famous stretch of road in the Parish of Boherlahan Dualla which is known as the “Golden Mile”. It is indeed a very
appropriate name as the houses on this particular stretch of road are home to a significant amount of All-Ireland medals; which have been handed down from one generation to the next. DuallaNationalSchool is a three teacher country school.The school is situated beside the Parish Church. The Chairperson of our Board of Management; Fr. Peter Brennan won All Ireland U21 Hurling medals with Tipperary and also represented the county at senior level in both hurling and football. We have a small pitch on the school grounds and all the children in the school practice their skills and play matches at both lunch breaks each day. The children are very proud of the area they live in and are very determined to uphold the rich GAA traditions that they have inherited. The children have legends in their own parish who they are very eager to emulate. The children in Dualla NS are given the opportunity to take up hurling and football as soon as they enter the school. The Class League this year proved to be very successful and all the children who participated in it were given a medal before the end of term. The children were taught two new skills each term and were encouraged to practice
these in their spare time. Mol an óige argus tiocfaidh sí.
September and Christmas, the children interchange between Gaelic Football andHurling. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays the children practice their skills in hurling. On Tuesdays and Thursdays they play against each other in Gaelic Football in our Class League. We train for an hour after school at certain times during the year. The Principal John Manley coaches the children in Gaelic Football during these sessions. Since February 2014, club coaches Brian & Fionn coach the children in the Junior Classes in hurling every Tuesday. From January to June, the children play hurling every day during ‘big lunch’. The club/school link is very important to us and our club are very supportive towards us. The club have been instrumental in organising the visits of Tipperary Senior stars to the school on a number of occasions. We won National Cumann na mBunscol Awards in 2010 & 2012.
Won a historic first ever county hurling title in June 2015 when our U11 hurlers emerged victorious in Semple Stadium.
