Monday 13th January saw the Glebe Primary School, Wicklow receive a snooker table kindly donated by our Chairman Ronan Deegan. Sandra Bryan the Principle is only too delighted to receive the table on behalf of the School as she is very much involved with the cue sports. Sandra has represented Ireland on many occasions in both Snooker and Pool. Sandra is also a National Coach so the School is very lucky to have Sandra to help promote the sport and along with Annette Newman on board the ladies game will get a much needed injection to help secure the ladies game in Ireland for many years to come. The students are very interested in taking up the sport and we look forward to seeing them take part in the National Primary School Championships soon. Thanks to Ronan for donating the table and to our Secretary Annette Newman for her support with the School & College Initiative.
The interest among the Schools and Colleges around Ireland is very positive and it is hoped by the kindness of individuals who donate tables and Schools and Colleges who accept the sport, we will have a very strong organisation and this will stand well for the sports future. During the months ahead it is hoped that we can get our top Professional and Amateur players to visit Schools and Colleges in order for these young people to see at first hand the great talent we have here in Ireland.
