REPUBLIC OF IRELAND
The Irish National Billiards Championship
Dick Brennan (Dublin) became the Irish Billiards Champion for the
third time when he defeated Victor O’Gorman (Dublin) 750-668 at Jim
Leacy’s Ivy Rooms in Carlow on 10th June. In the semi-finals, which
were held on the same day, O’Gorman had defeated Timmy Murphy
(Cork) while Brennan received a walk-over against Joe Delaney
(Wexford) who was unable to attend because of work commitments.
Phil Martin (Celbridge), previous winner of the championship in 1998
and 1999, was surprisingly eliminated in the earlier qualifying rounds
by Joe Delaney.
