Cork Harlequins was founded in 1925, by a group of women employed by Dowdall and O’Mahony, a dairy shop on St Patrick’s Street in Cork, solely as a hockey club. The women had entered a tournament at Church Road in Blackrock and when they took to the pitch, the Captain was asked by the organiser what name should be put on the fixture list. Legend has it, she picked up the ball at her feet, saw it was made by Harlequins of London and the rest they say 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.
With two functioning hockey pitches, one of the best cricket facilities in Munster, Cork Harlequins is entering a growth cycle with thriving youth sections particularly in the hockey section.
Currently the club has 6 players from our Women’s 1sts team who have been selected for the training panel for the Hockey World Cup in London in July so it is very exciting times for the club and it’s members. The women’s 1sts team play in the Irish Hockey League and are the only Munster team playing in this division.
