John O'Sullivan from Kilkenny won the South East Regional Intermediate event 5 at St Conleths CYMS, Newbridge on Saturday March 8. John played steady snooker all day and in his semi-final he beat local man Ernie McMullen by 3 frames to 2. In the other semi Newbridge clubmates Charlie Sweeney met Paul Kelly with Charlie winning on a 3 - 0 scoreline.
The final was a tactical affair with John using all his experience to emerge the worthy winner, helped by breaks of 48 and 59. Charlie's 92 in the early rounds proved to be the best of the day.
