Ronnie won the last leg of the Irish tour 2018 in Belfast yesterday evening, beating Mark Allen by 5-1 over the whole series.
Big thanks to Conor O’Boyle the organiser, who kept me updated throughout. Much appreciated!
Here is his report on what happened yesterday evening:
Hello! Yeah, absolutely amazing. Mark started off with a century against Stephen Dempsey, and Ronnie then knocked in a century against Robbie McGuigan (Mark Allen’s stepson who had a maximum in practice and is only 13). The match then started with Ronnie taking a 3-1 lead. Ronnie had two centuries. After the interval Mark had back to back centuries to level at 3-3. Mark got in first in the 7th frame and broke down on 47, Ronnie cleared with a brilliant 78. The next frame Ronnie potted a great long red and made a maximum, incredible. He potted two plants during the break to keep it going including an extremely difficult one to the middle pocket early on in the frame. Pure class and I have the full video on my Facebook page
And he also kindly shared those pictures:
Conor also shared a video of Ronnie’s 147 on his facebook page
