Description

Dessie Anderson of Bangor Engineers and Trades Social Club defeated Pat Morgan of St Patrick‚Äôs Club, 1200-833 in this Northern Ireland Amateur Billiards Championship at Mt Pottinger YMCA. 

Billiards should not be confused with either pool or snooker, being a game played with only three balls. It is an immensely tactical game invented in the 15th century.
