    IIBN at Lord’s

    A huge thank you to the team at Lord’s Cricket Ground for hosting IIBN in February ahead of this year’s historic Test match between England and Ireland from Wednesday July 24 to Saturday July 27. 

    The event was undoubtedly one of our most successful to date, with over 200 guests attending on the evening. We were also pleased to welcome guests from some of the other Irish networks and societies - it goes to show that there is nothing that can bring Irish people together like an Ireland v England game.

    During the event, Members had the opportunity to take a highly-entertaining tour of the Pavilion and hear the history of Lord’s from one of the guides. The feedback on the tours has been really exceptional and we’re delighted we were able to offer this unique opportunity to our Members.

    Our thanks also to Jamie Clifford, Assistant Secretary at the MCC for the warm welcome; and to Alan Lewis, former Irish cricket player and retired Irish…
