HP Ladies are travelling to Dublin
6th - 9th Sept
To celebrate what we are hopeful will be a very successful 2015 season. The HP Ladies are jetting off to Ireland for some post season fun and cricket in the shamrock capital. This will be our 2nd overseas post season tour after visiting Denmark in 2013.
Sunday 6th September:
The 1st XI have their final league match of the season on Sunday 6th September away to Bath. Once the match against Bath is concluded, this will signal the end of our summer 2015 season, and we therefore begin our post season tour immediately by travelling straight from Bath to Bristol airport where we will fly to Dublin that evening.
We will spend 3 nights in the busy district Temple Bar, where we will be staying above a pub that plays live Irish music all night every night!
What Wiki says about Temple Bar:
"Temple Bar is an area on the south bank of the River Liffey in central Dublin, Ireland. The area is bounded by the Liffey to the north, Dame Street to the south, Westmoreland Street to the east and Fishamble Street to the west. Unlike other parts of Dublin's city centre, it is promoted as Dublin's cultural quarter and has a lively nightlife that is popular with tourists, with locations such as the Palace Bar, the Temple Bar Pub, Oliver St.John Gogarty's and the Auld Dubliner."
Monday 7th September:
During the day we will do general Irish stuff (!) In the evening we will ba playing Merrion CC in a T20. Merrion CC is one of the largest cricket clubs in Dublin, and they run a very successul ladies team.
Tuesday 8th September:
Some more highly cultural and intellectual Irish stuff, followed by another T20 against a team yet TBC!
Wednesday 9th September:
Irish Stuff, fly home in the evening.
