World Snooker champions to play at Thurles exhibition

On Wednesday 23rd January, World Snooker champion Mark Williams will take on Ireland's finest Ken Doherty, the 1997 World champion in a special exhibition match in the Dome, Thurles.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see Mark Williams in action as he rarely participates in exhibitions, however when he does they are highly entertaining events. Both Ken and Mark are two of the most entertaining players on the Snooker circuit. The night promises to be full of jokes, stories, trick shots and even a little bit of snooker.

Mark will also take on three-time Irish champion Brendan O'Donoghue from Nenagh. Both Mark and Ken will also do battle with local talent, and a highlight of the evening will be when two people will be selected from the audience to play a doubles match pairing up with Mark and Ken.

Tickets for the event are available from Lar na Pairce, Thurles, Tel. 0504 22702 or online at Tickets are limited and an early purchase is recommended to avoid disappointment.

Standard tickets are €20 with VIP tickets on sale for €50. A VIP Ticket includes private pre-match reception with players, photo opportunity, finger food and VIP Reserved front row seat for the event.

David Joyce, promoter behind the event would like to thank Deputy Michael Lowry for his assistance in organising this event for Thurles and without his assistance it would not be possible. Once he heard that there was a possibility of this event coming to Thurles he left no stone unturned to make it a reality working extremely hard to ensure its success and something different for the people of Thurles to enjoy.
