There will be a number of trained coaches on hand led by our Head of Youth Coaching, Dermot Giltinan, and Club Development Officer, Ross Durity, both of whom have extensive backgrounds in coaching. They will be ably assisted by some of the Club’s senior players and ECB Level 1 coaches so there should be plenty to keep everyone involved.

A senior 20Twenty fixture between Cork County and Limerick Raiders will be taking place at 4.30 p.m. to showcase the game of cricket with some of Munster’s leading players taking part including Club Captain Bruce Koch and U-19 rising star Chris Banon.
