Profile

Donald Shearer played 13 first-class matches for Ireland from 1933 to 1952. His finest hour came, however, when he made 101 for the Gentleman of Ireland in a non-first-class match against MCC at Lord's in 1951. Shearer was better-known as a footballer: he played for Ireland and, in the 1936 Olympics, for England, when he scored twice against Poland. In the war, he rose to colonel in the Royal Artillery and commanded the garrison at Tobruk; later he became a prominent Belfast businessman.
