Billiards Classic

Paddy Donnelly lifted the first Billiard ranking event of the
season when he beat former professional Tommy Murphy
by 600 points to 320. Paddy also lifted the high break prize in
the top eight players section when he recorded a brilliant 182
to bypass the previous best of 107 by Davy Pogue. Tommy
took the top break for the players outside the top eight with a
nice 83, also in the final. The match was refereed by Eddie Bull.

Cheques were presented by George Thompson of the Reading
Rooms, in front of a large crowd. Results from the quarterfinals
