Over the last decade and more, there has been a strong growth in the number of new cricket clubs being set-up and developing many in close allegiance with the local authorities that Cricket Leinster have partnerships with.
Cricket Leinster has long-standing partnerships with Fingal County Council, South Dublin County Council, Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and Dublin City Council who's Dublin City Sport & Wellbeing Partnership do close work with many sports clubs in the City.
We also have burgeoning relationships with a number of councils and local sports partnerships outside of the capital city, with growing partnerships being established with Wicklow County Council, Wexford County Council, Meath Local Sports Partnership and a commitment to continue growth with Kildare, Laois and Louth.
As part of our partnership with Dublin City Council, we recently were asked for a cricket club to put 'in focus' as part of the #ThisisMyDublin campaign. Enjoy the wonderful story of Finglas Cricket Club below.
A great thing about Dublin is that we welcome people of all backgrounds into our city with open arms! 🌎 Sport has been hugely important to the members of Finglas Cricket Club to settle into their lives here in Ireland 🏏 This is their story... 👇— Dublin City Sport & Wellbeing Partnership (@dccsportsrec) August 19, 2019
