After the outstanding success of last year's event involving legends of the game, Ken Doherty, Dennis Taylor and John Virgo, will return to Wexford by popular demand this Friday, April 1.

The entertainment value of this event is not to be missed with stories, jokes, trick shots,impressions and even a bit of snooker thrown in.

One of the finest snooker players to hail from Wexford, Rodney Goggins, will take on Ken Doherty on the night while 11-year-old Alex Currid will face off against Dennis Taylor.

The event takes place in the Talbot Hotel and tickets are limited so it will be on a first come first served basis.

Standard tickets are €25, with a limited amount of VIP tickets available at a very keenly priced €40. VIP ticket holders will attend a pre match reception with the players and referee Michela Tabb, which includes refreshments, and they will have a reserved front row seat for the event.

Michela has been the world's top referee for many years and was the first women to break through to the top of the referring world. She has refereed three world finals at the Crucible as well as two Masters finals and many more prestigious events all around the globe.

She will be there to keep the other three in line and have a bit of fun along the way. Tickets are on sale in the 147 Club and Hore's Stores in Wexford town but early purchase is advised as they are selling quickly.

An event like this would be impossible to stage without the support of sponsors so a heartfelt thanks goes out to all the ad sponsors and to the two main sponsors, Hore's Stores and the Wexford People.
