ICC President David Morgan travelled to Dundalk, Co. Louth to meet with directors of Cricket Ireland as part of the ongoing process of information sharing with members.
Mr Morgan discussed the issues facing the ICC, its strategy and operations as well as the key challenges for world cricket. It was the ICC's latest such meeting with ICC Members, having already caught up with the cricket boards of Full Members Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Pakistan, England and Wales, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and the West Indies as well as some other Associates and Affiliates. He will travel to Harare next week to have similar discussions with Zimbabwe Cricket.
Following the meeting, Mr Morgan said: "This was an excellent chance for the sharing of information by both sides. From our side, I was able to inform the directors of Cricket Ireland about how the ICC operates as well as its vision and objectives for the years to come. Cricket Ireland was able to tell us of its own plans for continued progress.
"I was extremely grateful for the invitation and the time spared by the Cricket Ireland board and was also impressed with the ambitions of Cricket Ireland. Irish cricket is developing well as can be observed by Ireland's performances at recent ICC global events.
"Our discussions illustrated the challenges faced by all administrators within cricket to maintain the current strength of our great sport with its great spirit, and they highlighted that we are all charged with the same responsibility to lead the game forward."
Cricket Ireland Chairman David Williams said: "It was a real honour for us to be able to host the ICC President. We were able to share our plans for the continued development of cricket in Ireland and at the same time we were able to learn much more about the challenges and opportunities which lie ahead for this great game."
