THE Adare-based Limerick Cricket Club was announced as the winner of the recent Texaco Support for Sport initiative.
The club has been presented with a cheque for €5,000, which will be used to develop its training facilities, a priority being the purchase of freestanding ‘practice nets’ for the safe training of batsmen and bowlers.
Founded in 1968, Limerick Cricket Club fields four youth and six adult teams drawn from its 150-strong diverse and multi-cultural membership.
Now in its second year, the Texaco Support for Sport initiative sees an annual fund of €130,000 set aside for allocation in equal amounts of €5,000 to successful applicants chosen on a county-by-county basis. Overseeing the adjudication process was Texaco Support for Sport ambassador, former Irish rugby international and broadcaster, Donncha O’Callaghan.
Entries to the Texaco Support for Sport 2023 initiative will open this Autumn.
