Snooker star Glen makes Ireland debut
FOURTEEN- YEAR- OLD snooker whizz Glen Doyle made his international debut for Ireland recently and maintained an unbeaten record even if the national side did end up losing.
The talented Rathnew lad made his first international appearance for his country at an Under14 tournament against Northern Ireland in Carlow’s The Ivy Rooms. While Northern Ireland may have ended up winning the encounter, Glen put in the best performance for his side and remained unbeaten for the duration of the challenge as he won all his matches.
He attends De La Salle in Wicklow town and is also a member of the QClub at the Lower Mall. In snooker circles he is regarded as someone with tremendous poten- tial and is currently ranked number three in his age group in the country.
He makes his next appearance for Ireland in a clash with Wales and this season will be hoping to prove his ability by competing well in a series of Under-16 tournaments.
