Athy N.S Boys


The students are very keen to learn and Dan will be back in 2015 to help out organising a school league and provide further coaching.  The young ladies will be joining the Republic of Ireland Ladies Snooker Association and taking part in the RILSA Primary Schools National Championships in 2015.  The young boys will be looking forward to playing in the Stars Academy events.  All very positive indeed and I look forward to seeing them all in the new year.  Thanks to Deborah and all the students for their support and I wish them a very happy Christmas and best wishes for 2015.
