LARNE HAS NEW NORTHERN IRELAND MEN'S CHAMPION

What a boost for Larne Pool as 18 year old Ryan Marcus has been crowned 2021-2022 Northern Ireland Men's Individual Champion. Hard to put it into words the journey Ryan has been on. From entering an NIPA Under 15 Trials event in the Q.Club, Larne at the tender age of 13, he has risen to take the biggest National title available in the space of only 5 years. 

Ryan who plays for St Comgall's in our local League showed maturity beyond his years with some outstanding Pool over the two day event in Antrim Sports Club on 13th & 14th November. Amongst his very noteable wins was a 6-4 success over 2019 & 2020 Northern Ireland Amateur Snooker Champion Declan Lavery when he came back from 2-4 down with four consecutive dishes for a 6-4 success. In the Semi Final he announced his arrival on the big stage by defeating one of the top players in the world Declan Brennan in a nail biting 7-6 epic match. Ryan then kept his focus and belief in the Final, ousting the much more experienced Paddy Clarke from Newry by 8-4 with a superb last red to black to bring the trophy back to Larne.

In the photos - Ryan receives his Winners trophy from NIPA Secretary Gillian Rolston and is then pictured celebrating his win with friends. In the bottom photo Ryan (3rd from right) pictured at his first NIPA event in 2015 in the Q.Club. Many hours of practice in the Q.Club followed as he improved to where he is now. Not to mention winning the Under 23 Nations Cup of Pool Individual title in Cyprus in 2019 when aged only 16.

FOR MASON

The Larne Pool League were delighted to present a cheque this week for £734.00 to the parents of young Mason McCombe, raised for the League's annual nominated Charity of the last Pool season played before Covid 19. 

In the top photo. Mason on his favourite seat along with parents Jim and Alison and League Secretary Scott Hutchinson.

Bottom photo. Mason with League Chairman Bill McIlroy Sr and Secretary Scott Hutchinson.

"" Mason is 14 years old and has a genetic condition called Fragile X Syndrome. This means his X chromosome is damaged and due to this he suffers from Autism, Global Developmental Delay, Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties, Anxiety, displays Challenging Behaviour and has limited speech. He suffers from low muscle tone and is prone to episodes of absences, which are a form of epilepsy.

Mason has no sense of danger and will never be able to live on his own. He can cause injury to himself due to getting anxious in situations he has no control over.
Mason attends Roddensvale School and is in a small class of 6 pupils. The school have recognised that certain things help Mason to remain calm and deal with challenging situations.
He goes to the Hydro Pool and especially loves the Sensory Room. Both of these help him to relax and keep calm.
We applied for grants to provide a sensory room at home for Mason to enable him to have a safe relaxing space of his own and help him deal with any issues that can cause challenging behaviour.
Unfortunately our application was unsuccessful but friends and family began fundraising to enable this to happen for Mason.
We are overwhelmed by the support we received from friends, family, the local dart league, community group, Larne Rangers Club to name but a few and have almost reached the target of £6,000 needed to provide a sensory room for Mason. Everything has been ordered and a team of specialists from The Learning Space in Belfast will oversee the work until completion.
This will make such a difference to our wee boys life and we will never be able to thank everyone who helped in anyway enough ""
Alison & Jim McCombe
