Lismore Cricket Secures Major Sponsorship Deal and Unveils Exciting Kit Upgrade

Lismore Cricket is thrilled to announce a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to enhance the club’s facilities and equipment. Through dedicated fundraising initiatives aimed at acquiring a mobile dome covers, we are proud to reveal that our efforts have been rewarded with generous sponsorship support from esteemed partners.

The cornerstone of our sponsorship drive is the invaluable contribution from Assured Financial Solutions (AFS), who has stepped up as our Gold Sponsor, demonstrating a commitment to the growth and success of cricket in our community. Additionally, we extend our sincere gratitude to Centra Lismore and Micheal O’Leary/The Red House for their Silver Sponsorship, as well as AIB Lismore, The Write Coach, Tara O’Flynn Equine Dentistry, and Boru Sports for joining us as Bronze Sponsors. We’d also like to thank Lismore Food Co, Lismore Heritage Center, Rebel Cricket, and Blossom & Berry for further supporting our fundraising efforts via kind donations.

With the support of our sponsors, we are delighted to announce a dynamic partnership with Boru Sports as our new kit supplier. This collaboration allows us to elevate our team’s appearance and performance with high-quality gear that reflects our dedication to excellence on the field.

The new kit proudly showcases the iconic Lismore blue flower emblem (Read more here), symbolising the deep-rooted connection between Lismore Cricket and the region we proudly represents. Additionally, the new T20 kit in the traditional green and gold of the club, and the new “Lismore Blue” features a stunning depiction of Lismore Castle, a landmark synonymous with the rich history and heritage of our community. Serving as the backdrop to our matches for over 150 years, Lismore Castle embodies the spirit of resilience and tradition that defines our club. With every player adorned in this distinctive kit, we honor our past while embracing the future of Lismore Cricket with pride. We thank Helen and Lismore Castle for their collaboration in this enterprise. We’re confident our players will be proud “putting on the (Lismore) blue” for years to come.

In line with our commitment to providing value to our members, we are excited to unveil a new club shop (coming soon), where members can purchase the latest Lismore Cricket merchandise, including the newly updated kit from Boru Sports. Furthermore, thanks to the generosity of AFS, we are thrilled to offer a special launch price for our playing jerseys. The first 30 units sold of both the white playing top, and the blue T20 top will be available at a subsidised price. We encourage every member to take advantage of this limited-time offer and secure their jerseys promptly to show their support for our sponsors.

The impact of this sponsorship extends beyond our kit upgrade, as it aligns with our broader goals of improving our facilities. Combined with the support received from the Sports Capital grant, we are pleased to announce that the much-anticipated mobile dome covers will be installed early this year, enhancing our training and playing capabilities, and further cementing our legacy as the only all-grass wicket in Munster.

We extend our heartfelt appreciation to all our sponsors for their belief in our vision and their commitment to empowering local cricket. Together, we are forging a path towards a brighter future for Lismore Cricket, and we look forward to celebrating many victories together on and off the field.

Lismore Cricket Club’s 2024 AGM

Last night, the Lismore Cricket Club hosted its much-anticipated Annual General Meeting (AGM), drawing in a robust turnout from dedicated members eager to contribute to the club’s future. The atmosphere was charged with enthusiasm and a shared commitment to furthering the club’s legacy within the community.

The AGM, a cornerstone event for any organisation, serves as a platform for reflection on past achievements, discussion of challenges faced, and strategic planning for the future. This year’s gathering was no exception, as members engaged in spirited discussions about ways to enhance the club’s operations, expand its reach, and nurture talent within its ranks.

One of the highlights of the evening was the Election of officers – whereby the club executive is was re-elected, leading to a stable foundation in 2024. This bodes well for the club’s continued success and underscores its importance as a vibrant hub for cricket enthusiasts in the Lismore area.

Another key point of discussion was the approval of the minutes from the previous year’s AGM, providing a comprehensive record of the club’s activities and decisions. Members who were unable to attend the meeting in person need not worry, as they can easily request a copy of the AGM minutes by contacting the Secretary. This ensures transparency and inclusivity within the club, allowing all members to stay informed and involved in its affairs.

As the evening drew to a close, there was a palpable sense of optimism and camaraderie among those in attendance. The AGM had served not only as a forum for addressing important club matters but also as a celebration of the shared passion for cricket that unites its members.

Looking ahead, the Lismore Cricket Club is poised to build upon the momentum generated by the AGM and continue its mission of promoting the sport, fostering community spirit, and providing opportunities for players of all ages and abilities to participate and excel.

In conclusion, the success of last night’s AGM speaks volumes about the strength and resilience of the Lismore Cricket Club and the unwavering dedication of its members. With their continued support and collective efforts, the club is primed for a bright and prosperous future, both on and off the field.

Chairman for 2022 – Ben Huskinson

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, Ben Huskinson Club Chairman, 2022.

COVID declaration form  |  Book a training slot here

The main reason why these protocols are in place is to keep us all safe, minimise risk of infection and enable contact tracing to work if someone has fallen ill. So here’s what you need to know:

And don’t forget, you need to register as a member for 2021 and pay your subs!

Please note: Membership has to be strictly enforced this year, due to insurance and COVID requirements.


2021 Registrations Open

The plan released from Cricket Ireland indicates that under-18s can start training in pods of up to 15 people from 26 April 2021. While it is hoped that adults can return to training in May, we are still awaiting the exact timing of this, which is subject to further Government guidance.

However, the MCU expects to be able to operate a full league season, starting in June or July, following similar covid measures as set out last year.

While we await government and MCU guidance on exactly when we can return to train and play, we are opening the membership applications up. This is vital for the club, as with COVID restrictions activity & maintenance around the club has been non existent. However costs of running the club still remain, with spending on insurance, grounds maintenance and upgrading the club house a priority. We expect to be able to return to get the pitch & cubhouse in order in the coming weeks, so we thank all members who have paid memberships already, and encourage all other members to support the club in the lead up to the coming season.
