Brendan Devlin

Brendan has several connections with the sport of English Billiards – as a player, referee and administrator.  
He lives just beyond the outskirts of Dublin in Leixlip. Brendan took up the game at age fifty and has a highest break of 89 in  practice and 64 in competition.  He uses an ash cue and favours an Elk Master tip.  
Since playing in the Irish national championships, Brendan has become more involved in the administration of the game. For the national tournaments, he acts as Tournament Director and is unofficially recognised as the Billiards Secretary of RIBSA.  He also acts as National Team Manager for the Irish team at international events.
 
Since retiring in 2008, Brendan has also become a billiards referee and progressed from Class 3 to Class 2.  He refereed the final of the European Open at The Ivy Rooms in Carlow, Ireland in February 2012.
 
Away from billiards, Brendan enjoys frequent visits to his grandchildren and he enjoys gardening, DIY, cycling and walking.  Since becoming a pensioner he makes good use of his travel pass to travel Ireland by train and bus.  He is also a regular spectator at motorcycle road races in Ireland and has a fascination for railways, especially steam powered.
