Christine Carr from Kildare was presented with the RILSA Bronze International Cap award by the RILSA President Annette Newman recently.
Christine reached 10 International Caps for Ireland at the World Women’s Billiards Irish Masters a few weeks ago. This certificate and pin is a testament of her commitment and dedication to female cue sports over the past 8 years and the award is so well deserved.
Christine’s first outing for Ireland was the International Irish Snooker Open in 2015 where she reached the Quarters of the Intermediate event. In 2016 Christine represented her country at the Ladies World Snooker Championship in Leeds UK, also in 2016 she reached the Quarters of the main event at the International Irish Snooker Open again held at Joey’s Snooker Centre Dublin. In 2017 she would once again reach the Quarters of the main event of the Irish Open in Joey’s Dublin.
2018 Christine would go one better at the International Irish Open reaching the final of the Intermediate event taking runner up prize. Now having 5 International Caps for Ireland was a great achievement, however Christine was not finished representing her Country, with an invite by the Welsh Billiards Association to send female Billiard players to the 2019 Welsh World Billiards Open in Cwmbran Wales, Christine was selected to go as part of a 4 player representation of female billiard players to represent Ireland and create history in the making as the first ever female players to represent Ireland on the World Billiards Stage.
Following on from Wales, Christine would once again reach the Quarters of the main event of the 2019 Irish International Snooker Open and reached the semis of the International Irish Open Billiards event.
Our two World Women’s Billiards Rankings, the Open and Masters in 2021 saw Christine reach the Quarters of each event and completing her 10 International Caps.
Congratulations to Christine on her great achievement and we are certain she will one day gain the Silver Cap Award for 15 caps for Ireland.
