Adamstown Cricket Club, located in west Dublin, will be recognised with a special Emerging Club of the Year award at the 2018 Turkish Airlines Cricket Ireland Awards on Friday 2 November 2018.

Formally founded in 2009, Adamstown Cricket Club is leading the way in developing and growing the sport of cricket in their local community.

Elaine Nolan, Participation Director for Cricket Ireland, said:

“The nomination for Adamstown was a ringing endorsement of the commitment and achievement of the many volunteers associated with the Club over the last nine years. On the pitch, their teams are competing well in the Cricket Leinster competitions, but it is off the field that the Club is truly making their mark.”

“In terms of player and member size, the Club is one of the largest in Ireland, and put out six teams in open competitions this year, six teams in Cricket Leinster’s youth leagues, and a Girls Minor team.”

“A major achievement this year was also the opening of a new indoor hall with cricket training facilities in the Adamstown community, which was attended by Irish internationals Kevin O’Brien and Isobel Joyce.”

“The Club also states that it is very much at the start of a long-term journey and seeks to establish itself as one of the leading clubs on this island.”

“The entire team running the Club should be very proud of their work and we are delighted to be able to recognise their contribution to cricket in Ireland.”
