The Mayor of Carlow Andrea Dalton met with our current National Snooker & Billiards Champion, Annette Newman recently at the Seven Oaks Hotel.

Annette was delighted with the meeting with Andrea who was very impressed with Annette’s success in cue sports and the work carried our by the Republic of Ireland Ladies Snooker Association over the past 7 years in particular.

Our work within our member schools is going very well, Andrea was glad to see progress in the Carlow area with full size tables installed in St Laserians Special School and Knockbeg College along with fold up tables in Ballinabranna, Hacketstown, Leighlinbridge and Ballon National Schools in the County.

Annette’s visit to local schools and her meeting with the Mayor is all important in our promotions going forward as young girls are introduced and see at first hand players such as the calibre of Annette who takes time out to help our organisation develop female sports in the County and across the Country.

Thanks to Annette for her time and support and to Andrea Dalton for taking time out of her busy schedule to meet with Annette.

Andrea is fully supportive of our promotions and we will keep her posted on our future progress.
