Irish Cricketing Stars to grace the Mardyke for RSA Inter-Regional Series

Cork County Cricket Club has been chosen by Cricket Ireland as the first venue for the RSA Inter-Regional Series match between the North and the South. It will be the first senior representative match at the Mardyke since Ireland took on the MCC in 2002, a fixture which saw Niall O’Brien score his maiden international century. Last season saw the Club successfully host the European U-17 Challenge Series between Ireland and Scotland and it is hoped that such calibre of matches can become a regular occurrence at the Mardyke over the coming years. The Mardyke has undergone considerable renovation off the pitch over the past two years and so it is very gratifying for the Club to host such a prestigious event.

The interest in cricket in Munster, particularly at youth level, has really taken off over the past few years with the success of the Irish team so to have some of those international players such as Kevin O’Brien, Andrew White, John Mooney and Trent Johnston competing at the home of cricket in Munster is very exciting for the Club. The Irish cricketing community can be assured that the Mardyke and Cork County will endeavour to provide the best possible conditions both on and off the pitch for players and supporters alike. Admission is free on the day so we’d encourage as many people as possible to come along and enjoy some top quality cricket at the Mardyke and become more involved in Cork County Cricket Club.
