Ronan is the Master

Well done to Kircubbin's Ronan McCarthy who has just added the Northern Ireland Masters title to the Northern Ireland Individual title which he claimed back in March. The venue was the Kingfisher Bar in Bangor and in the Final Ronan beat 16 year old Lee Wright from Cullybackey who has improved tremendously this year, but just couldn't handle the know how and experience of McCarthy as he went down 6-0.
