Clubhouse to reopen following Storm Frank flooding

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016

The clubhouse and Club Bar will reopen on Tuesday, 5th January, having been inaccessible for the past week or so due to flooding of the outfield and the entrance pathway following Storm Frank. Luckily, there has not been any damage to the Pavilion itself. Hopefully, the weather will now start to improve and the threat of further flooding and disruption will subside.

As a result of this closure, we have lost significant bar and function revenue which has put a major strain on our cash flow as we head into the quietest time of the year for bar and function business. To help deal with this, I would ask any member who is in a position to do so to pay their 2016 subscription as soon as possible which would greatly help us pay our way over the next few weeks.

Subscriptions for 2016 remain as follows:

  • €275 for full adult playing members; and
  • €75 for Students & Pavilion members.

 

Payments can be left with the bar staff in the Pavilion for my attention and cheques can be posted to me at 6 Willow Court, Cross Douglas Road , Cork.

Niall O’Brien Visits Cork County

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Ireland and Northants wicket-keeper Niall O’Brien was back in Ireland at the weekend taking part in coaching sessions at Cork County.

The visit was a huge success with Niall visiting the Presentation Brothers College gym in the morning to do a session with the schoolboys and then moving onto the Cork County senior practise session in Ashton School where he put the senior and junior squads through their paces.

The large turnout and huge interest in the visit just proves how the game of cricket is growing in popularity on Leeside.

Niall mentioned that “its an absolute pleasure to be coming down and help out. I have so many fond memories of playing in Cork as a kid with Railway Union and scored my first Irish ton at the Mardyke so it has fond memories for me.”

Dermot Giltinan, Cork County Youth Coach, said that “it was a fantastic day for Cork County to have one of Ireland’s leading cricketers down to put the lads through their paces. It is not often that our young players get to learn from an International cricketer of Niall’s class and his great personality and manner really rubbed off on them.”

“The visit has given the game in Cork a huge lift and just highlights the potential that Cork County has at it’s disposal especially with our participation in Leinster Division 2 this season.”

Cork County Clubhouse and Pavilion Closed

Sunday, December 20th, 2009

Dear all,

Please note that the cricket club has been taken over by a contractor and is off limits to all including members.

The contractor took possession of the site on Wednesday. Since then the bar and the public toilets have been removed and the floor construction should be starting this Monday the 21st of December 2009. Updates will be posted every week as soon as further information is made available. The Committee are hoping to have the bar reopened for the first week in March.

The Committee wish to thank all members for their patience and support, especially Dermot.

We hope to be up and running as soon as possible.

For any further information and queries please don’t hesitate to contact John Power 086 3826032.
