Kimberley Jennifer "Kim" Garth (born 25 April 1996) is an Irish international cricketer who made her senior debut for the Irish national team in 2010. She is a right-handed all-rounder who plays her club cricket for Pembroke Cricket Club.[1]

Born in Dublin, Garth is the daughter of Jonathan Garth and Anne-Marie McDonald, both of whom also played for Ireland.[2] Her father was born in South Africa.[3] Garth herself made her international debut in July 2010, in a one-off ODI against New Zealand. On debut, she was 14 years and 70 days old, making her the youngest Irishwoman to debut and the third-youngest overall (behind Pakistan's Sajjida Shah and Scotland's Fiona Urquhart). Several others have since debuted at younger ages.[4]

Garth went on to play six more ODIs in 2010, including at the 2010 ICC Women's Challenge in South Africa.[5] That competition featured both 50-over and 20-over components, with Garth making her Twenty20 International debut in the latter, against Pakistan.[6] Aged 14 years and 174 days, she became the youngest player of any country to appear in that format, beating the record set by the Netherlands' Miranda Veringmeier. Three of her Irish teammates – Elena Tice, Lucy O'Reilly, and Gaby Lewis – have since debuted at younger ages.[7]

Since making her debut, Garth has been a regular for Ireland at both ODI and T20I level. In ODIs, her most outstanding performance to date came in August 2012, when she took 4/11 from five overs against Bangladesh (including the first four wickets to fall).[8] Her highest score at that level was made during the same month, an innings of 39 runs against Pakistan.[9] In Twenty20 Internationals, Garth has taken two three-wicket hauls – 3/6 against the Netherlands in August 2011,[10] and 3/17 against Australia in August 2015.[11]

In November 2015, Garth was named International Women's Player of the Year at the Cricket Ireland Awards.[12]
