Tournament victory for Hughes

The second Billiards Tournament of the Season was played at the Ivy
Rooms Snooker Club. Carlow on Sunday, 21st October 2001. The
players decided to switch from the 50-up games used for the first
tournament and revert to the old format of 400 points up, giving some
players a handicap. Only one handicap player reached the semi-final
stages, Anthony O’Connor (Limerick), where he came up against the
winner of the first tournament, Aidan Murray. Anthony tried very
hard but his handicap was not enough to trouble Aidan who won 400-
313. The other semi-final was a ding-doing match with Irish Champion
Eugene Hughes (Dun Laoghaire) proving too strong for Victor O’Gorman
(Monkstown) 400-348. The final was a repeat of the first tournament
final but this time the result was reversed with Eugene getting his
revenge over Aidan with a very easy 400-203 victory.
