Cricket came to St.Declan’s in 2013. It offered an alternative to other mainstream sports such as soccer and gaelic games. Cricket Ireland sent in a coach to teach the students the basics and have a bit of fun. Some of the boys already play for clubs such as Phoenix, Civil Service and Clontarf Cricket Club. Indeed a few students compete at Leinster and Ireland level. Hopefully, 2015-16 will be the year for cricket in St.Declan’s.
