Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has congratulated Cricket Ireland for securing Test Status following a meeting of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in London.

“I am delighted that Ireland will take its place among the Test playing nations. It's great news for the game here and a fitting result for many years of hard work and campaigning by Cricket Ireland.

"Ireland has enjoyed some notable successes at International level in the shorter versions of the game. We can now look forward to some great days ahead as Ireland takes on the top Test cricket playing nations in the world.”
