Welcome to Lismore Cricket Club – one of Munster’s oldest cricket clubs located in the heart of the farm grounds of Lismore Castle.
Cricket has been played in Lismore since the 1850’s and though we don’t know an exact start date, our earliest record of a full club committee dates back to 1872, which means that we will celebrate our 150th anniversary next year.
The Club has had a revival in recent years, and will for the first time field 3 separate teams in Munster Cricket Union League and Cup competitions, as well as our social team that hosts friendlies with visiting teams from across Ireland and the UK.
We are also in the process of improving our grounds, clubhouse and facilities to help ensure that this small but vibrant club has a positive outlook for the next generation to come.
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, 2021.
