Billiards Player Profiles

The game of Billiards in Ireland, although not nearly as popular as the game of Snooker, nonetheless, has its own core of keen and dedicated players. Also, while operating on a much smaller scale than its Snooker counterpart, Billiards enjoys a very active season every year with a full calendar of both National and International events.

Another aspect of the game of billiards, worldwide, is the social side of the international events which almost universally include an evening dinner, giving players, officials and supporters alike, an opportunity to renew friendships, exchange experiences and enjoy the camaraderie of their shared fraternity.

RIBSA hold ranking events and National Championships each year and our players compete in all the International events each season.

Please find the profiles on the Billiard Players who compete in our RIBSA Events.
