Biography/Information:

  • Married to wife Billie since 1979 and they have two sons.
  • To celebrate their 30th anniversary, she bought him a full size Billiard table which now has pride of place in their home. He is honoured to have regular home sessions with World Champion Dave Causier when Dave comes over to Ireland. Aonghus says that “it’s a great form of exercise running around the table taking the balls out!”.
  • He was a TV commentator for over 25 years at the Irish Masters Snooker tournament in Goffs.
  • He has played against Steve Davis, Steven Hendry, Alex Higgins, Jimmy White, Dennis Taylor, Ken Doherty and was on the receiving end of a 147 break against Ronnie O’Sullivan!
  • Aonghus is a brilliant character (and entertainer) and is guaranteed to have you bemused with one of his many card tricks, much to the dismay to his magician arch-rival Peter Gilchrist.
