The flagship event in the Donegal pool year is almost upon us, taking place in the Radisson Hotel in Letterkenny from the April 12-14 next.
This is always a fantastic event, and this year is sure to be even better! The Radisson Hotel is a fantastic, central venue, and the function room there will be the perfect place to accommodate the 8 Supreme Winner pool tables. A large turnout is expected across each of the categories.
On Friday April 12, the over 40s, under 23s and ladies singles competitions take centre stage. Registration for these 3 events is from 5:30pm-6:15pm, with play starting at 7pm sharp. Entry fee for these 3 sections is €20.
On Saturday April 13 it is the team event. Always a great days craic, there will be an A and B section. Each team is made up of 4 players, with 1 sub if required. Registration is from 8:30am-9:15am, with matches commencing at 10am sharp. Entry fee per team is €160, which includes entry to the main singles event the next day.
On Sunday April 14, it’s time for the main singles event. Shaun Sharkey will be aiming for a fifth county title, although he will be up against it as there is quite a number of strong contenders!
Registration is from 9:15am-10am, with play starting at 10:45am. If you just want to enter the singles, and were not on a team on the Saturday, entry is just €20. But don’t worry if you lose in the opening 2 rounds – there will be an optional plate competition for just €10 extra!
