The current incarnation of Dundalk Cricket Club was established in 2009 and since that time we have twice won Leinster titles as Leinster Cricket Union Division 11 Champions in 2011 and Division 9 Champions in 2012. For the 2015 season the 1st XI will be playing in Division 10 and the 2nd XI in Division 15.

Active efforts are being made to establish a Ladies side as well as junior teams and we would encourage boys and girls of all ages to consider joining the club, we have qualified ECB Level 2 coaches in the club and can therefore offer a high standard of coaching.

The Cricket World Cup is in full swing and it's time to get behind Dundalk Cricket Club to help produce the next crop of international players.

The club will be holding a pub quiz in Byrnes Pub on the Dublin Road this coming Thursday 19th February starting at 8pm.

A table of four is €20 and there will be a raffle and spot prizes, all are invited along for what usually proves to be a great evening as well as raising much needed funds.

2009

The current Dundalk Cricket Club was formed in 2009 and came about as a result of an initiative by the Louth Sports Partnership.

In Summer 2009 a group of immigrants started playing cricket on a disused site near the old Dundalk Shopping Centre. Former members of Crusaders CC  became aware of this and an approach was made to Noel Redmond (County Sports and Recreation Officer) and he explored the possibility of setting up a Club.

2010

The club acquired it's ground on the Green Road in Dromiskin just outside Dundalk early in 2010.

The club began by playing friendlies only in 2010 although it did enter into the Midlands and South East Cricket Association Dick O'Neil Cup progressing as far as the semi-finals.

The club is named "Club of the Month" in the world's best selling cricket magazine 'The Wisden Cricketer' for October

2011

The club formally joined the Leinster Cricket Union and entered a team into Division 11. The club uniquely in the province went unbeaten for the whole season and were therefore Division champions with the highest points total of any club.

2012

The club entered a second team in Division 12. The first team having been promoted to Division 9 were again Division champions and promoted to Division 8 for 2013. The second team remained in Division 12 for the 2013 season.

2013

The 1st XI finished third in the table and therefore remained in Division 8 for 2014, the 2nd XI finished at the bottom of Division 12 and were relegated to Division 13 for the 2014 season. 

2014

An artificial pitch is laid down at the club's Dromiskin ground.

The club's 1st and 2nd XIs are both relegated to Divisions 9 and 15 respectively.

The club reaches the final of the Dick O'Neill Cup for the first time but emerge as runners up to Co. Galway CC.

In association with the club an all girls team is founded in St. Vincents School and they make their friendly debut with plans to enter league cricket in 2015.
