Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS - By SARA GA­HAN

Paddy Kin­sella from Clogh was the over­all win­ner of the ninth an­nual Poker Clas­sic held in Buf­fers Al­ley on Satur­day night.

Mary Fo­ley, PRO for Buf­fers Al­ley GAA Club, said Paddy had a great run of cards on the fi­nal ta­ble which saw him edge out Pat Don­nel­lan from Bal­ly­gar­rett and Nel­lie Far­rell from Bun­clody in the fi­nal few hands.

The fi­nal plac­ings were Paddy Kin­sella, Pat Don­nel­lan, Nel­lie Far­rell, Ai­dan Leacy, Paddy Breen and Tess En­right. Nel­lie was on the fi­nal ta­ble as well last year.

Ai­dan Leacy, a reg­u­lar to the an­nual Poker Clas­sic, was also win­ner of the first poker, but there were no win­ners of the straight or royal flush.

‘Paul Do­ran won the door prize which was kindly spon­sored by Hamell’s Cen­tra Kil­muck­ridge,’ added Mary.

MC on the night was once again Ben Martin and the club is very ap­pre­cia­tive of his loyal sup­port. The com­mit­tee thanked all those who came along on the night in such large num­bers to play cards, the club mem­bers who supplied re­fresh­ments and a spe­cial thank you to Shay Ham­mell for his gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship.

The Poker Clas­sic com­mit­tee are also thank­ful to Bren­dan Roche of the lo­cal pri­mary school for the use of fur­ni­ture for the night of the event. Mary said they are look­ing for­ward to a big­ger and bet­ter Poker Clas­sic 2019.
