With the County Championships put firmly on the back-burner, the focus has switched to one-day mode with plenty of action in both the T20 and 50 over formats.
A quite brilliant century by Niall O'Brien was undoubtedly the highlight of the Irish performances in England over the past week.
O'Brien bludgeoned 7 sixes and 5 fours as he made 105 not out as Leicestershire chased down a DL adjusted target to beat Hampshire by 6 wickets.
The innings represented quite a turnaround in fortunes for O'Brien who had made 0 in the defeat by Gloucestershire earlier in the week.
Gary Wilson's tenure at the helm of Surrey saw them progress to T20 finals day - he made 12 as Surrey made hard work of a modest Worcestershire total, before eventually prevailing by three wickets.
Wilson will come toe-to-toe with familiar faces as Warwickshire beat Essex by 19 runs to make the final. William Porterfield scored 32, while Boyd Rankin took 3 wickets.
With Kevin O'Brien returning to the Surrey ranks for the finals, it will mean four players who played in the same Irish under-age sides competing on the same pitch - some achievement.
Porterfield made just three as Somerset - who haven't played George Dockrell in recent games - beat Warwickshire by 117 runs.
Somerset also overcame Middlesex at Lord's by six wicket - Paul Stirling making 29, while Tim Murtagh took 0 for 55 in his ten overs.
There was better news for Murtagh though as Middlesex announced he was being awarded a benefit year in 2015.
Ed Joyce was in steady for as Sussex won two matches - he made 26 as his team chased 288 to beat Durham, while his 58 helped in their 36 run over Surrey - Gary Wilson making just a single.
Wilson enjoyed more success in a dramatic game with Kent. He took three catches and made 29 as the Oval side tied with Kent as they chased 314.
