Irish cricket to get new home in €9million development

Irish cricket is to get a new permanent home.

The board of Cricket Ireland have endorsed the development of a new €9million cricket stadium at the Sport Ireland campus.

They say building a new stadium in Abbotstown would prove less problematic than developing the existing ground at Malahide.

Ireland's recently-acquired Test status has added to their number of home fixtures, making a new home a must.
