Kilkenny, Ireland – 28 June 2018

Ronnie has now won the Irish Tour 2018 series against Mark Allen as he leads by 4-1 ahead of the last leg to be played in Belfast tomorrow. Here is Conor’s report on the evening.

Fifth leg in Kilkenny started off with Ronnie making a century against his amateur. The match against Mark started then and Ronnie had back to back centuries to take a 2-0 lead. Ronnie took the next to stretch the lead to 3-0 and Mark had a fantastic century clearance to reduce the deficit at the interval to just two frames at 3-1. Mark came quickest out of the blocks after the interval taking the next two frames to level at 3-3 which included a wonderful 105 break. Ronnie however got in first in the next two frames with some incredible safety and long potting to close out a 5-3 win with a 137 total clearance and a 98 in the last two frames. John Virgo had prior engagements so the great Tony Knowles stepped in as trickshot maestro and MC. Last night of this tour on Saturday night in Belfast!

Once again thank you Conor!
