Noel Landers from Youghal CYMS won the second RIBSA / IBSF U-18 Snooker Ranking event of the season in the Ivy Rooms Snooker Club, Carlow on Saturday the 18th of February. In the final Noel beat Sean Devenney from Northwest SC 3 frames to 0 in a great final.
Noel now qualifies for the World IBSF U-18 Championship later on in the year and he will attend training at the other U-18 Events with our National Coach to prepare for the Championships. In the semi finals Noel Landers beat Darragh Cusack 3-0 and Sean Devenney beat Ross Bulman 3-2. The Tournament high break went to Ronan Wyhte with a 65 break.
Our National Coach PJ Nolan was the Tournament Director and he was very impressed with the talent on show. Paddy Hanifin was the referee on charge and all the matches will be the best of 5 frames including the final. RIBSA would like to thank the Ivy Rooms for hosting the event.
