As a show of support for its official charity partner, Cricket Ireland has announced that the Lord’s Taverners Ireland logo will appear on the sleeve of the Ireland Under-19s Men’s playing shirt throughout the upcoming ICC Men’s U19 Cricket World Cup – the first official warm-up match against Zimbabwe Under-19s starts on Sunday 14 January. 

Lord’s Taverners Ireland – Cricket Ireland’s charity partner since May 2023 – is a charity whose mission is to help young people with additional needs to participate in sports though the funding of specialist equipment for individuals and organisations, funding mini-buses for charities supporting young people with additional needs, and supporting the roll-out of Table Cricket, an inclusive programme for people of all abilities run by Cricket Leinster.

To date, Lord’s Taverners Ireland have funded 22 mini-buses for improving access and accessibility of young people with additional needs and supported 25 individuals and clubs with sports wheelchairs and adapted sports bikes.

Paul Farrell, Chair of Lord’s Taverners Ireland, said:

“We are very pleased for the recognition that the Lord’s Taverners Ireland has been given with our logo featuring on the sleeve of the Ireland shirt for the ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup. As a fully volunteer-run charity, we work hard to raise funds to support young people with additional needs get a sporting chance in life.

“While many people within the Irish cricket community know of our work, this is an opportunity to broaden awareness of our work and showcase many of the projects we have funded over the years – and to make the wider community aware of how they can support kids with additional needs across Ireland.

“You can learn more about us and make a donation today at

“Thanks to Cricket Ireland for this gesture of support and we’ll be Backing Green as the Under-19s take on some of the world’s best underage players.”

Warren Deutrom, Chief Executive of Cricket Ireland, said:

“Cricket Ireland is delighted to work with our charity partner, Lord’s Taverners Ireland, to highlight their achievements and spotlight their needs during the Men’s Under-19s World Cup.

“The volunteer team at Lord’s Taverners Ireland undertake fantastic work across Ireland, raising funds to help young people with additional needs to get involved in all types of sporting activities. Their commitment to young people is second to none, and they have a record of delivery over many years.  

“We highly recommend Irish cricket fans and the wider community to learn more about the Lord’s Taverners and, if you are in a position to, consider supporting their work.”
