When you think of athletes who excel in their field of sport, who comes to mind?

Soccer – Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar.

GAA – Connolly, Keegan, Comer

But when it comes to Snooker, there’s always going to be one name that towers above the rest.

Ronnie ‘The Rocket’ O’Sullivan has become famous for his fast 147s and his crazy outbursts and antics at the table but he has always backed it up with results.

His stats don’t lie:

Five time World Champion, a six-time UK Champion as well as 57 other accolades including the Welsh Open, Irish Masters and The Grand Prix and The Masters.

He has made 953 centuries as well as fourteen maximum breaks in recorded, competitive play, which is the highest completed by any player in the game’s history.

So, it’s great to say that this legend is a massive fan of Ireland.

He took to Twitter to say that our little country was the best place on this earth.
