Snooker and Billiards Ireland held the Intermediate Championships in the HQ on Sunday 8th May
We had 42 entrants all bidding to make it to this year’s semi-finals and after a gruelling 11 hours of match play we are down to the last 4 and we only have one top seed left in the competition.
The final 4 consist of Snooker & Billiards Ireland Chairman Dylan Rees, Donal Foran from the Commercial Club, the man from Dublin Andrew Doherty and local man Colvin O Brien.
The standard in the championship was high quality with Dylan Rees knocking out the number 3 seed. The number 2 seed was also knocked out early by Karl Fitzpatrick.
The line for the Semi Finals are:
- Donal Foran v Andrew Doherty
- Dylan Rees v Colvin O Brien
- Winner – €400
- R-Up – €200
- Semi Finalists – €100 x2
- High Break – €50
The current high break is 74 held by Mark Gleeson
SBI would like to wish all players playing in finals weekend the very best of luck.
Finally, SBI would like to thank TD Shane Mason for running the successful event and to Referee Conor Doyle and a big thank you to the players for entering and we hope all our members enjoyed playing in our new home of Irish Snooker. We look forward to seeing everyone again at finals weekend on the 21st May
