About Merrion

Based on Anglesea Road in picturesque Ballsbridge in Dublin, we have a vibrant youth section supported by top quality coaching and development that has seen our members graduate to the highest standards of world cricket. Tyrone Kane; Leah Paul, Rachel Delaney and Celeste Raack are a few of our current International stars. Merrion has a history of producing international talent, which includes recently, Gus, Ed, Dom, Cecelia and Isobel Joyce, John Anderson, Kate McKenna, Elena Tice as well as a number of others. 

Merrion has a large number of teams (seven men, three women, three social and boys and girls teams for all age groups) catering for all standards and interests.Our brand new award winning clubhouse is the perfect place to enjoy the club's social and friendly atmosphere throughout the cricket season - with families particularly welcome, to a ground that's especially safe for young children as access is well off the main road. 

We have been at our present location in Angelsea Road since 1906. Merrion is a family oriented club that is an integral part of the local community. We have members from across Dublin and have grown to be one of the biggest amateur cricket clubs in Europe. Merrion already has excellent facilities with a major new clubhouse development completed in the 2014 season. 

Club History

Merrion Cricket Club was founded in 1906 by a few members of the old Land Commission and has been at its present location in Anglesea Road since 1908. Merrion's mens First XI was promoted to the Senior League in 1926 and have played every year since. 

Undoubtedly Merrion men's golden period was from 1940 to 1963. A number of Irish internationals played for Merrion during this period, including Simon Curley, Paddy Waldron, Paul Warren and Rodney Berstein. Vinnie Holloway, Brendan Curley, the Burke and Hayden brothers and Chris Mara were also regular performers. Merrion won the league and cup double in 1940 (first team to achieve this feat; no games lost) and the league in 1945, 1952 and 1958. The Leinster Cup was won again in 1960. Merrion also lost five cup finals and were runners up in the league three times. With the Senior League increasing to nine teams in 1953 and to ten teams in 1957 the number of matches played also increased with 362 matches played with Merrion winning 145 and losing 113. 

It was not just the Irish economy that prospered in the 1990s, but also Merrion CC. Some have speculated on the linkages between the two and certainly Merrion has benefited greatly from the increase in the number of cricket playing immigrants. But there was much more to the 90s than an influx of antipodeans. The coaching structure in the club which for so many years had produced a steady flow of cricketers only to see them leave Irish shores to find work abroad, finally began to see a return for the effort. The often neglected junior ranks also saw a revival in fortunes with more players and teams and improved performance. And the women's section was revived after a break of over 10 years.

Finally, women's cricket was revived at the start of the 90s and by 2000 Merrion had fought its way back to senior levels as well as supporting a second junior side. In 2003 all the hard work culminated in the first victory in the league since the early 1980s, as well as runners up in the '40 Overs' league. In the years since, they have been one of the most successful teams in the country, winning the Leinster senior cup, the Pilkington Plate and the Senior League on a number of occasions.
