As part of the Irish New School, Club & Volunteer Awards for 2017 in conjunction with the Ulster Council and O’ Neills Sportswear we are delighted to announce that we have been named the Overseas Club of the Year for 2017. As you all know our club is growing from strength to strength each year, this is great recognition for all the work that has gone into the club since our inception in 1974. Thank you to the Irish News, Ulster Council & O’ Neills for this award. We look forward to designing our new set of jerseys to be received as part of this award.
Liam Tynan leads the way & is the only person with 4 from 4 giving him 26 points. He is closely followed by Richie Tynan on 22 before a chasing pack on 20 points. We still have a large number of entrants waiting to get off the mark!
In the Snooker World Championship Final Mark Selby overcame a slow start on the first day to beat John Higgins 18-15 & retain the trophy for the third time in four years.
At the Kentucky Derby Always Dreaming kept the winning favorite record going for the fifth year in a row by taking 1st place. The 9/2 fav avoided a cluttered start where Classic Empire was almost wiped out by McCracken & brought home points for those who selected ‘Other’.
Next up is the European Champions Cup Saturday 13th where those who went with their heart & picked Leinster or Munster wont be collecting any points as Clermont Auvergne take on Saracens at Murrayfield.
