Rathkeale Snooker and Billiards Club
The History of the Rathkeale Snooker and Billiards Club goes all the way back to the 1940’s. The C.Y.M.S, as it was known then, was a one table club and it was billiards that was mostly played. Back in the 80’s it moved to what was called the Complex, situated behind the Abbey on the Limerick side of Rathkeale. In the 90’s they purchased another table and now have a fine 3 table club.
The club has earned several Irish titles in billiards over the years. In 2019 they had their first snooker champion when Jack O’Brien won the under 12 Irish Snooker Championship in Carlow and won the under 12 pool championship in the Gleneagle Killarney. They play several handicap tournaments for their members throughout the year with 3 snooker cups and 2 billiards cups.
Membership fees are reasonable, and the club offers a discount for families.
For any enquiries, please contact Tom Enright on (087) 931 7421, to arrange a meeting at the club.
