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.

The club fees for 2021 and bank details are on our membership page and as of this year you are now able to pay online here
