A TEAM of Doctors from Sligo travelled to Castlebar on a beautiful Autumn's morning for the first Inter-Hospital Cup cricket match.
The fixture took place on The Mall, in the heart of the town.
There was great interest and excitement from the many onlookers and there were representatives from Cricket Ireland to oversee proceedings.
The cricket apparel was sponsored by Sports Clinic West.
The wickets, bats balls, and gloves were sponsored by the Consultants of Mayo General Hospital.
The game was very close but Mayo were the proud winners of the Inaugural Perpetual Inter Hospital Cricket Shield.
Players and members of Cricket Ireland retreated to the Travellers Friend for a well deserved lunch sponsored by Sports Clinic West.
