Gary Johnston Irish Pool Champion 2015
Congratulations to Gary Johnston on winning the Irish Intervarsity Pool Individual championship in Dublin last weekend. Gary emerged from the 170 player field to the semi final on Saturday night. In front of a large supporting crowd Gary defeated event favourite Colin Crossan 4-3 before meeting Adam Powell in the final. Gary secured the title with a superb shot on the second last red to win 5-3. Gary adds the title to his Irish snooker Intervarsity individual title in 2012 to become the first player ever to complete the illustrious double. Having also won an Irish snooker Intervarsity team championship in 2013 and a pool home nations title with the NI students team in 2014, Gary becomes arguable the most complete cue sports player ever at Irish Intervarsity level.
