Deryck William Harrison (born 3 November 1943 in Lurgan, County Armagh, Northern Ireland) is an Irish former cricketer. A right-handed batsman, he played eleven times for the Ireland cricket team between 1978 and 1980, including two first-class matches and one List A match.
Harrison made his debut for Ireland against Denmark in July 1978 and made his first-class debut against Scotland the following month. His next match was against FW Millett's XI in July 1979, scoring 74 not out in the Irish first innings, his highest score for Ireland.
He continued that year with matches against the MCC, Wales and Worcestershire in addition to a second, and final, first-class match against Scotland. His international career then came to an end in 1980, playing against the MCC, twice against the West Indies before his final game against Middlesex at Lord's, a Gillette Cup match that was his only List A appearance.
The senior cup was the competition that launched the embryonic Northern Cricket Union in 1887 and it remains the ambition of every senior cricketer to play in the cup final.
