Just like to add..
The Irish hospitality was second to none,couldn't do enough for us.
Meeting 5 from The Hills CC was entertaining and introduced Mick,Des and Myself to a number of people,including Morgans brother and the chairman of the Irish Cricket Board to name 2.
It was a well organised ground,plenty for children to do as well,bouncy castle,kids cricket as well.
We left at sometime gone midnight,and the whole party was still in full flow!
Also,our players mixing in and chatting with the locals went a long way.
Well done to Leinster and Pembroke Cricket Clubs and wish them both good luck for the season.
Be good if this carrys on next season,we have a trophy to defend!

I'm really pleased you all had a good time. Especially, Rogers and Out who had wasted 3 days in Leicester but clearly not in Lenster. I would have loved to join you.

As usual Beefy. Excellent report of the event and shows the reach of Mx with 1700 turning up.

Just to echo Beefy's sentiments. It was a very well organised event and congratulations are in order to both Leinster and Pembroke cricket club.

Usually at crowded small grounds, it's difficult to get a decent vantage point but this certainly wasn't the case here, especially from the comfort of the clubhouse with an endless supply of Guinness.

Watching India v Afghanistan at the airport yesterday, there were similarities with our game, and whilst Steven Finn's two wickets in two balls were not as dramatic as Mohammed Shami's hat trick, it was enough for us to secure a narrow victory.

My last visit to Dublin for cricket 22 years ago saw us defeated by a Hansie Cronje led Ireland at Clontarf in a B&H group match, so it was nice to see a Middlesex win this time around.

Great company as usual with Rod Ed again showing his prowess on the dance floor despite being without his partner from Southport Seaxe Man. Our trip from the ground back to our hotels with the singing taxi driver will remain long in the memory.
