FULL EVENT INFORMATION
There are now just three days to go to the Smartwater Summer Smash, this Friday 21st June with a 5.30pm Start in Pembroke Cricket Club, Sandymount and a record crowd is already guaranteed.
Cricket Leinster wishes to advise all those who plan to attend on Friday of the following event information.
1. There is no on-site parking available
Due to the scale of crowd expected and all external areas of the playing fields in Pembroke being used for various aspects of the festival side of the Summer Smash, we are unable to offer any on-site parking.
