Welcome to Lismore Cricket Club – one of Munster’s oldest cricket clubs located in the heart of the farm grounds of Lismore Castle.
This year is an important one for the our Cricket Club – it is the 150th year anniversary since the first record of a Club Committee and full season of games in 1872. Over that time the club has seen a varying degree of success, and most recently have enjoyed a revival in recent years. We will be celebrating this event during the summer of 2022, so keep an eye out on our website and social media channels for news.
I’d like to thank the Club Committee, particularly Dan Dixon, Adrian Stack and Michael Condo. Mark Hunter and Suzanne Cotter for all their hard work in helping run the Club. They and the other members have been a great help in improving our grounds, clubhouse and facilities to help ensure that this small but vibrant club has a bright future for the next generation to come. Having completed the shed, we will be completing building renovations, purchasing wicket covers and a heavy roller by the end of this year, to ensure that the only club with an all-grass wicket in Munster provides good games and a traditional setting in which to play the game.
We have a membership register of around 40 members and field a league team in Division 3 of the Munster League. as well as our social team that hosts friendlies with visiting teams from across Ireland and the UK.
We welcome all who have an interest in this wonderful game to our grounds and look forward to seeing you down at the Castle Farm.
Yours in cricket,
Club Chairman, 2022.
