Bill O'Reilly Oration
Date of event: Friday September 20, 2019 12:30PM

The Annual O’Reilly Oration will be held on Friday 20 September. The venue will again be the Booth/Saunders Pavilion at Hurstville Oval. Proceedings will commence on the Oval at 12 noon with drinks, followed by a three course lunch from 12.30pm.


I am pleased to advise that former Australian wicketkeeper and current President of the Australian Cricketers Association, Greg Dyer, has accepted the invitation to deliver this year’s address. There is no doubt Greg will provide a thoughtful and interesting perspective on Australian cricket.


As is the tradition of this function we will also have a panel discussion moderated by Murray Bennett. On this occasion he’ll be joined by a panel including former Australian representatives Dave Gilbert and John Dyson. This is always a popular component of the function and fits well with the O’Reilly philosophy of forthright thinking.


The cost of this year’s O’Reilly Oration remains at $165 per person or a table of ten at $1650 (GST inclusive) with bookings for this function via email by 13 September to You are also very welcome to ring me direct on 0407 291 872.


The O’Reilly Oration has become the traditional start of the cricket season at St George DCC at our beautiful home ground, Hurstville Oval.


With Greg Dyer delivering this year’s Oration it will again be a function for your diary. I hope you and your friends are able to join us.
