Saturday 20th September was a new date set for the Stars Academy Ireland Scholarship along with providing coaching for our Republic of Ireland Ladies Snooker Association members. The day began with a brief introduction to the rules from Dan Carroll and thereafter a talk through and demonstration on technique and practice routines. The Scholarship students were very keen to learn and they enjoyed the few hours at the club. The ladies present also had a good day and are looking forward to their very first snooker event on Saturday 27 September in Joey’s snooker club, Dublin.
A six red competition was played among the Scholarship Students and Sean O’Connor from Kilkenny beat Joe La Cumbre from Laois in the final. The semi finalists were Robbie Keogh from Laois and Laura Regan from Tipperary. Thanks to all for taking part and to Marian and staff of the Ivy Rooms for providing excellent facilities.
The very best of luck to all the ladies in the upcoming Ladies National Championship.
