Background

Cork Harlequins was founded in 1925, by a group of women who were employed at a dairy shop on St Patrick’s Street in Cork. These women wanted to enter a tournament at Church Road in Blackrock and folklore has it when the Captain was asked by the organiser what name should be put on the fixture list she picked up the ball at her feet, saw it was made by Harlequins of London and as they say the rest is history!

The club added a cricket section in 1967 and in September 1970 the Lord Mayor of Cork opened the new club pavilion which today houses the club bar.

Cork Harlequins have two hockey pitches and one of the best cricket facilities in Munster. We are entering a growth cycle with thriving youth sections, particularly in our hockey section. Cork Harlequins women’s 1sts team play in the Irish Hockey League and one of two Munster teams playing in this premiere division. The team have 5 internationals playing, with 1 of our players returning from the World Cup 2018 with a silver medal. This team also won the Irish Senior Cup in 2019 bridging a 19 year gap when the club first won this trophy in 2000.

Cork Harlequins is part of the Cork sporting community and contributes positively to the lives of both our members and the wider community. Our goal is to continue to develop the club for future generations to come. With your support you can help us to achieve this aim.
