SNOOKER: With the snooker doubles tournament at semi-final stage, entries are now being taken for the singles championship.
In the doubles semi-finals the surprise pairing of Derek Kinahan and Seamus O’Neill play the Cleere brothers, Anthony and Paul. In the other semi, Christy Power and Michael O’Neill play the new favourites, Tommy Buckley and Paul Carroll.
