Sion Mills
« on: August 28, 2020, 02:23:38 PM »

Anyone on here playing cricket in Northern Ireland? We just had a trip there on holiday and stayed near the famous ground at Sion Mills. Anyone that hasn't heard of it can take a look at the match report on when WI were trounced by an All-Ireland team.

Sad thing is that the pavilion has been torched by arsonists, as has the historic Mill that can be seen in the YouTube footage.

Anyone know if cricket is still active there? And what is the story of the fires? The usual politics or just disaffected kids? It looked like maybe a couple of pitches had been used this season...
