Ken Doherty and Dennis Taylor along with snooker commentator John Virgo are headlining this very special event which is sure to entertain. The snooker exhibition is back in Wexford by popular demand and will be an evening of snooker and comedy with John Virgo's reputation for quips and laughs.

Sponsored by Hore's Stores Sports and the Wexford People in association with O'Brien's Sandwich Bar tickets for the night are on sale in Hore's Stores Sports and the 147 Club. There are two packages available for punters, a regular ticket which costs €25 and a VIP ticket for €50.

Tickets are sure to be snapped up quickly with John, Dennis and Ken proving a big hit when they last appeared together in Wexford.

On the night Dennis Taylor and Ken Doherty will each play two players from the 147 Snooker Club before playing each other. John Virgo will commentate on all matches while the referee on the night will be Michella Tabb who has referred games at the Crucible.

Doors are at 7.15pm with the show starting at 8pm.
