Snooker legends Steve Davis and Ken Doherty will put on an exhibition of snooker in Offaly this summer.

They will play, perform trick shots and chat about their life as sporting legends at Birr Theatre on June 5. Ticket holders will have the opportunity to meet with both snooker heroes and have their photo professionally taken and printed on site.

Turning professional in 1990, Ken Doherty has won a total of 6 ranking tournaments including the 1997 World Snooker Championship. In other triple crown events, he is a three-time UK Championship runner-up and a two-time Masters runner-up.

An intelligent tactician and prolific break-builder, Doherty has compiled more than 300 century breaks in professional competition. Since 2009, he has combined his playing career with commentating and punditry work.

This one night only extravaganza takes place on Tuesday, June 5 and tickets are €40 – including meet and greet, professional photograph and the show itself.
