Snooker star Glen makes Ire­land de­but

Bray People - - Sport -

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.

Wick­low’s Mayor John O’Brien con­grat­u­lates Rath­new’s Glen Doyle in Wick­low Q Club af­ter he made his in­ter­na­tional snooker de­but.
