Annie May's funeral will take place at 12.30pm on Wednesday 31st October in Macosquin Presbyterian Church (Englishtown) followed by internment in the adjoining Churchyard. Refreshments to follow in the Lodge Hotel afterwards.

The family have requested that everyone wears bright colours to celebrate the short life of their gorgeous rainbow baby.

Ryan earns his place on the IPA Tour


What a fantastic performance today by Ryan Scott in the first NIPA 2019 IPA Tour (Belfast Leg) Qualifier. The event was held in the Q. Club, Larne and from a field of 31 the Larne man fought his way to the Final where he faced Antrim's Roger Smyth. But just as in his Semi Final Ryan recovered from 0-2 down fighting back to register a 5-3 win.

With his win he secures a place in both the IPA Amateur event and the IPA Open event when the Tour comes to Belfast in February 2019.

It's a great reward for Ryan as he puts in many, many hours of practice, play and miles into the game he loves.

Connor is King in NIPA Under 23 Individual


What a fantastic performance by 16 year old Connor Marron in the 2018-2019 NIPA Under 23 Individual that was played out today Sunday 21st October 2018 in Reds Sports Lounge. From a snooker background, Connor has only recently turned his hand to the reds and yellows and he has certainly made his mark in a very short period of time. Today he became our Under 23 Individual Champion taking on and overcoming more established players on his way to success where the experienced James Nesbitt awaited.

And what a final we had. Marron quickly raced into a 3-0 lead but after Nesbitt stormed back to lead 4-3 one could have been forgiven for thinking that James would move on and see the match out. But young Connor had other ideas and trailed 5-6 after the next four racks were shared. Frame 12, and the break off shot was to be James' last of the match. The Coleraine man went in off and Marron stepped up to clear for 6-6. And it wasn't long before it was all over as Connor duly pulled off a superb break and dish in the decider to claim the crown.

It's a great confidence booster for Connor before he travels with the NI Under 18 squad to the 2018 Blackball International World Championships in Yorkshire next month.

QUARTER FINALS
Connor Marron 6-4 Aaron Rolston
Ryan Marcus 6-1 Dean Reid
