Irish club cricket's Senior Cup has been renamed the Bob Kerr Irish Senior Cup in memory of the former ICU president who died in March.
Bob Kerr had served as president of the Irish Cricket Union
Mr Kerr, who was also a former chairman of the ICU, died suddenly in Jamaica where he was supporting Ireland during the World Cup.
He was president of the ICU in 2004, and chairman from 2000-2001.
At the time of his death he was also serving as chairman of the North West Cricket Union.
ICU president Tom Prior said that he was extremely grateful to Bob's wife Hope for "her formal patronage of this prestigious competition".
"Bob was a great supporter of the Irish Senior Cup and I believe it is very appropriate that his name will now be commemorated in such a manner," added the ICU president.
"Also I hope we can ask all members of the media to refer to the competition as being played for The Bob Kerr Irish Senior Cup."
Hope Kerr said:"My husband Bob was a real enthusiast for cricket, and the All-Ireland dimension of the game was particularly important to him.
"For that reason I am very pleased to give his name to this Senior All-Ireland Trophy."
The Bob Kerr Irish Senior Cup gets under way on Saturday with 32 teams participating in the opening round.
