The Leinster Senior League is the provincial cricket league within the Leinster jurisdiction in Ireland, which covers the province of Leinster in the Republic of Ireland. The league was formed in 1919,[1][2] the nine founding members being Phoenix, Leinster, Pembroke, Dublin University, Railway Union, Civil Service, U.C.D., County Kildare and the Royal Hibernian Military School.[3] The league is currently divided into fourteen divisions. It includes one member club from the Munster province: Cork County. It is sponsored by RSA.

Teams play each other twice per season, once at home and once away, with league positions determined on the basis of percentage of points gained out of possible total points.[4] 20 points awarded for a win, 12.5 for a tie, no points are awarded for “no result”, and up to five bonus points are awarded, depending on the margin of victory.[5] Matches consist of one innings per side, with a maximum of fifty, and a minimum of twenty overs bowled per innings.[6]
