Frederick Harrison "Derrick" Hall (15 August 1892 in Blackrock, County Cork, Ireland – 4 January 1947 in Virginia Water, Surrey, England[1]) was an Irish cricketer. A right-handed batsman,[1] he played five times for the Ireland cricket team between 1924 and 1930.[2]

Playing career[edit]

Prior to making his debut for Ireland, Hall made his first-class debut, playing for Dublin University against Northamptonshire in June 1924.[3] He made his Ireland debut two months later, playing against the MCC in Dublin. The following year, he played a first-class match against Scotland,[3] scoring 34 in the Irish first innings, his highest score for Ireland.[2]

He played twice more in 1926,[2] a first-class match against Oxford University[3] and a match against the MCC, before spending four years out of the Ireland side, returning for his final match, against the MCC, in July 1930.[2]


In all matches for Ireland, he scored 43 runs at an average of 5.38.[2]
