Big Cork contingent to attend Ireland’s first Test match

Ireland’s first men’s Test match will be on home soil against Pakistan from Friday, May 11th to Tuesday, May 15th. It will be a historic moment following on from when Ireland and Afghanistan were given Test status in June 2017 to become the 11th and 12th Full Members of the ICC.
