Cricket in Mount Temple has been growing substantially for the last number of years and is now entering 6 teams (3 boys and 3 girls) into Leinster School competitions.
On the boy’s side, we have a 1st Year, 2nd Year and Senior Team and in 2018 won the 2nd Year B league. The 2nd year team won a nail biting final v The High School and we hope to build on this going forward.
On the girls side of cricket, we have a 1st year, Junior A and Senior A team. Our Junior A Senior A teams were both extremely successful in 2018 and both reached their respective A league finals. They were the first Mount Temple teams to reach a tier A final in any sport in over 20 years. Unfortunately, they both narrowly lost to extremely strong St. Andrew’s team’s in their final.
Aoife Brennan (5th Year) and Christina Coutler Reilly (4th Year) are both current underage internationals and they will look to follow in Una Raymond-Hoey’s (past pupil) into the full international set up.
The school cricket season will continue again in March and sessions will be run by Mr. Forrest and Mr. Abbott.
