Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport
Minority Sports and Women's Participation in Sport: Discussion.
I know the European Cricket Council has the requirement. Cricket Ireland does not want the requirement. It is something that perhaps the committee should consider for the other 64 bodies. Parent bodies have different rules and regulations. The requirement to have an Irish passport to play for the Irish hockey team should not apply because of the unique circumstances in Ireland. We should make that point on behalf of the other associations.
