Irish Cricket History
Profiles of Irish Cricketers

We are very grateful to Edward Liddle who has written most of these profiles.

2016 Additions
  • Aubrey Finlay
    Aubrey Finlay started out as an opener, but later found a niche in the upper middle order and became a dominant force in North West Cricket for many years.
  • Paddy Neville
    Paddy Neville, who was also capped by Ireland at hockey, was one of the best batsmen in Leinster cricket for a number of years.
  • Boyd Rankin
    Boyd Rankin, possibly the tallest man to have played cricket for Ireland, returns to play again for Ireland.
  • Robin Haire
    Robin Haire was a highly talented, versatile and utterly determined cricketer who began his career as a slow left armer but eventually became a very good upper order batsman.
  • Andre Botha
    An all rounder of great skill with a rock solid defence and glorious cover drives. As a bowler he was an accurate medium pacer who kept batsmen guessing.
