Government investment into Malahide Cricket Club must follow the announcement that the club will have the honour of hosting Ireland's first ever Test Match.

Fine Gael TD for Dublin Fingal, Alan Farrell welcomed Test cricket to Malahide and said: 'It's essential that the Government step up and provide the infrastructure to Malahide Cricket Club which will allow our local economy in Fingal to realise the economic benefit which comes with being a Test status nation.' He said the country will see a return, saying it would 'allow our country to reap the economic rewards in terms of the increased number of overseas visitors these test matches will attract'.
