What a fantastic day at my 147academy National under 12 Snooker Championship in the Ivy Rooms SC in Carlow on the 23rd of April.
Leone Crowley from Shooters SC, Ryan McGuirk from Navan, Oisin Bateman from the Kilkenny Shed and Noel Gleeson from the New Institute will contest the semi-finals after all four played fantastic snooker to qualify for the Semi Finals on the 8th of May.
Youngest ever players
Oife Gleeson aged 9 became the youngest ever lady to compete in a Irish National Championship while Adam Wynne aged 4 became the youngest ever boy to play in a RIBSA Irish National Championship so the future is looking good for Irish Snooker.
Thank you to all the players, parents and Clubs for making the event such a success and I am very proud to have my 147academy involved in developing the juniors in Ireland.
