BILLIARDS and SNOOKER have been an integral part of the RIYC since the clubhouse was built.  The billiards room itself is purpose built and has been in regular use ever since by members of all ages.

The snooker handicap competition in the autumn is the most popular event with over 70 members competing.
During the spring the snooker scratch and billiards handicap competitions run concurrently and are also well attended.

The draw for the Snooker Handicap competition for 2017 which launches the start of this seasons Billiard Room activities, is being done on Friday 22 September. The Snooker dinner will be on December the 8th and usual rules apply. The entry fee of €50 covers both competitions and includes dinner on the finals night in April.
