paddy morgan did us proud, shortly after arriving in sydney he won the australian billiard title and held it for many years.
i believe he came from northqueen street and worked on the bus's.

i believe he also went to st gabriels for a while.

Bob I think he held the Aussie title for so long because nobody challenged him. He told me it was under his bed.he came to our club one night and played the 10 best players and told a few jokes. There was some really good player in the club he give them all a big start and beat them all.
