Christine Carr from Newbridge, Kildare came onto the women’s snooker tour in 2014 and immediately made an impact when she won the Inaugural Special Needs National Championship in October 2014.

Since her win over 3 years ago, Christine has never missed an event, such is her commitment to the sport and our Association.  We in RILSA are absolutely delighted to have Christine as a member and we commend her loyalty and support over the years.

Throughout the 2014-2015 season, Christine reached the quarters of the National Championship along with a further 3 National ranking quarter final places and 1 semi final place.

2015-2016 saw Christine reach 3 semi finals and 2 quarter finals along with an Intermediate Ranking win.  As the seasons progressed, Christine began to improve each season as she wins 2 Intermediate Ranking titles and a runner up place in another.  Christine reached another 3 quarter finals and 2 semi finals before the end of the season.

The 2017 Inaugural RILSA County Kildare Federation Championship win was well deserved after all her dedication to the sport.

Christine made a big impact in the women’s billiards when it was introduced in 2015.  Her runner up spot in the 2nd National Billiards Ranking in 2016, spurred her on to practice more and it certainly made a great difference to her over the past two seasons in women’s billiards.  She started well in 2017 with a semi final place in billiards ranking 1 to follow with a runner up place in the billiards ranking 2.

The inaugural Intermediate Billiards National Championship was Christine’s as she played great on the day, to give her two National titles and one County Championship title in 3 years.

Christine finished 5th in Ireland after the 2014-2015 season on the National Rankings and has improved each year with a 4th place 2015-2016 and is the current Irish number 3 this season.

In the Intermediate National Rankings Christine was number 2 after the 2015-2016 season and is current the Irish number 1 on the Intermediate National Rankings.

Christine represented Ireland at the World Ladies Snooker Championships in Leeds in 2016 and has taken part in the International Irish Open the last 3 years.  She reached the quarters of the International Intermediate in 2015 and went on to make the semis of the Intermediate in 2016.  The 2017 International saw Christine make the quarters of the main event.

Fantastic success for this devoted player as her efforts over the past number of years clearly shows, that many achievements in your chosen sport are there if you put in the time and effort.

We thank Christine for all her support and we wish her well in cue sports now and in the future, long may Christine be a member of our great association.
