New Cricket Nets

Published on Aug 30, 2019 03:25 pm

The groundwork for the new cricket practice area was completed this week. We hope this is the first phase of developing a top-class facility for our members. We have put in three concrete and stone batting lanes and Matt Dwyer will install the carpeting in the coming weeks.

We expect to find out in September if our application for Sports Capital Funding for netting, lighting, and a canopy was successful. We will be well placed to move forward if it is. In the interim, we will use our roll nets on the new surface. One way or another, we will have new nets to practice in shortly so there can be no excuses for not scoring runs and taking wickets.

The groundwork was done with the support of the Sports Club as part of their commitment to making right the area after the development work. The installation of the new carpets will be funded by the cricket club through our fundraising efforts. The Cricket Leinster Club Draw is a big part of this drive.

Cricket Leinster have put together €12,000 worth of prizes and all the proceeds of our ticket sales go to our club. It is a great opportunity for us raise much needed funds to improve our facilities. There are still tickets available for €10 or 6 for €50. If you feel you could sell a book or if you would like to buy one, contact Ger O’Brien (mob: 0863232566 or ). There will be tickets available at the National Cup Final on Sunday.

We marked the end this successful season with a lovely BBQ and Prize Giving Ceremony last Friday night. We were honoured to have our Cricket President Francis Carty say a few words and present our Awards. A big thank you to all the parents who brought delicious salads and dishes last Friday night to our End of Season BBQ and Awards Night.
