While Dave Causier dominated proceedings at the SBI Academy Carlow over the past week with fantastic displays in all his matches throughout and in the final against Sourav Kothari from India 8-2 in the Macau Casino World Matchplay, we congratulate Dave on his win and well done to the organisers, sponsors, players and officials who made the weeks competition in Carlow such a great success

Our very own Aidan Murray and Billiard Coach was delighted with his performance in reaching his second quarter final of the week.  His opponent in the quarters was Dave Causier who simply was on fire and fired in big breaks to see off Aidan 6 nil in their match
