Quick overview This fascinating new book looks into the history of cricket in Fingal and explains why the sport has found a home there.
€25.00

Once perceived as an elitist sport, Fingal cricket has somehow managed to transcend all social and political divides and continues to attract new generations of players.

According to Cricket Leinster’s website, there are 10 clubs operating in the Fingal area, including Malahide, North County, the Hills, Rush, Ringcommons, Swords and Balbriggan.

‘The Story of Cricket in Fingal’ is something of a labour of love for its author James (Jim) Bennett, who said the project evolved organically in 2019 in the run up to the 50th anniversary celebrations of the famous Hills club in Skerries.
