Cor­mac best in world... again

Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS -

DROGHEDA pool ace Cor­mac Kerr is on top of the world again.

The gifted 18-year-old has just se­cured the World Un­der 23 8 Ball pool ti­tle.

Com­pet­ing in the fi­nals in Black­pool against the best 64 play­ers in the world, he saw off last year’s runner up in the first round by 6-3.

He then made his way right to the fi­nal where he met the reign­ing Euro­pean un­der 23 cham­pion, Jack Smithers.

And he stormed to an 8-4 win.

Cor­mac is the reign­ing Euro­pean and World un­der 18 ti­tle holder.

He prac­tices four or five days a week and up to five hours a day.

‘Pot­ters, Jojo Mur­phy in the Mariner, Noel Carter at NVM Ltd have all been great to me, as well as fam­ily and friends,’ Cor­mac stays.

He has dreams of mak­ing it onto the pro scene in the fu­ture but for the mo­ment is look­ing no fur­ther than the Eu­ro­peans in Kil­lar­ney, which is the next ‘ma­jor’ on the in­ter­na­tional cir­cuit.

‘The tour has fin­ished for the year now,’ he added.
