Letterkenny snooker players help Ireland win in Wales

Snooker players Sean Devenney and Ronan Whyte

Snooker youth players Sean Devenney and Ronan Whyte have helped Team Ireland to win the snooker Celtic Challenge 2016 in Wales.

The team, including the boys (pictured) from the North West Snooker Club in Letterkenny, was made up of six U14 and six U16 players had six sessions to play 24 frames.

Ireland won the first five sessions to claim the title with some great snooker being played to leave Wales 30 points behind with only 24 available.

But Wales saved the whitewash when they won the last game 15-9.

Ronan won two, drew two and lost two.

Sean had a great tournament, winning three matches, drawing two, and losing only one.

He also recorded the highest break with a score of 68.

This was also their last year to compete at this tournament as both are overage next year.

They have home internationals in Leeds at the beginning of August.
