University Cricket 1992
Irish Universities Championship 1992

The holders UCD, with such experienced players as senior interprovincial representatives David O'Riordan, Anton Canavan, Jonathan Fitzpatrick and John E Byrne in their ranks, were expected, along with co-hosts Dublin University, to capitalise on home advantage in the 1992 tournament.

However, a major surprise was in store as the two Northern Ireland sides, Queen's University Belfast and Univeristy of Ulster, emerged to contest the final in College Park, Queen's triumphing by 73 runs. Stephen Mann led their batting performances while Michael Anderson was their outstanding bowler (taking seven wickets in the Final), well supported by Ulster Town representative Jonathan Irons and Deans.
