Ranji Cricket Tournament – 7th May, 2016

The Ranji tournament is Ireland’s number one multicultural sporting event and involves teams from the world’s largest corporations.

It was founded by Anne Chambers, author of ‘Ranji: Maharaja of Connemara’ to commemorate Ranji’s association with Ireland and to honour his efforts during the early years of the Irish state to bridge racial boundaries and to promote Irish-Indian relations.

Teams representing corporations such as the ESB, Google, Intel, Microsoft, Rabobank and Aamazon will take part this year. The competition will be held on Saturday May 7th, and promises to be an entertaining day out for fans and families alike.

A special competition for eager young cricketers to show their developing skills will be held during the interval. Entrance is free and open to all.
