Railway Union Cricket club

RailwayIndoor Cricket

Railway Union won the recently held AP Sports Indoor Cricket Shield, which ran over autumn and concluded just before Christmas at Cabra Sports Hall.

In a repeat of the spring final, Railway beat the Northside based Leprechauns. The final went to the last over and the Railway team held their nerve.

Railway’s second team the Raiders (which was made up of youth team players ) also acquitted themselves well over the course of the league, which is good for the future.


Railway would like to announce that our player/coach Pat Collins will be returning to the club in April for another season. The popular Queenslander had a very successful 2013 where he was one of the standout players in Irish club cricket. All at Railway hope an Irish call-up isn’t too far away for the 24 year old. Pat will continue his work of developing and coaching young talent at local schools such as Star of the Sea BNS and Scoil Mhuire GNS and also with the youth teams at Railway.

The T20 World Cup takes place in Bangladesh in March and the Irish team will be there after they won the qualifying tournament in the UAE in December. Railway Union would like to wish club members Kevin and Niall O’Brien all the best in this World Cup and are sure the two men will do the country proud.

If any boys or girls would like to join Railway Union CC please contact Elaine Coburn on 087 2352426 for details of training times as the youth teams are all back training now.
