NIACUS provide Umpires at all levels of cricket throughout NCU region and Ireland.
Qualified Umpires can expect to cover under age and schools cricket through to premier league in the NCU.
The Inter-Provincial competition throughout Ireland offers those umpires who wish to further their career to international standard. The Inter-Provincial competition has now been upgraded to First Class status.
We have several umpires who have reached Cricket Ireland Elite and First Class panel who can go on to umpire in International ODI cricket.
We have two umpires in Alan Neill and Mark Hawthorne who are on the ICC Elite panel.
Women's cricket is in the ascendency at present and there is a great opportunity for our women colleagues to progress through the ranks to International level. We would like to hear from any women who might be interested in taking up umpiring. Please contact this website if you need any further information.
NIACUS represents all scorers in the NCU region. We run training courses that cover from the beginner to more advanced levels needed for Inter-Provincial and International level.
We are always interested in hearing from anyone who may be interested in pursuing a career in cricket scoring and would like to discuss the opportunities that are now available to reach International level of scoring with the Ireland team.
If you are interested in learning more about scoring please contact Murray Power (see below) for further details.
This opportunity is open to existing club scorers and new scorers who may not be scoring at their club at present. It is also available to anyone who does not belong to a club but would like to take up this role within our organisation.
