THE CRUCIBLE... Sheffield

After so many years, it was finally time to go to the Crucible to see the World Champs and who better to go with than Dearbhla, my partner in crime!

What a surprise the city of Sheffield was...we loved it! The cobbled roads, the old building, the shops, the atmosphere on the bustling streets near the Crucible...what a buzz.

The Winter Gardens

My friend got us tickets for his matches so we were sorted... the theatre was so nice, not like other snooker tournaments where your butt is so incredibly numb if you're sitting in the audience, the seats were so comfy we could sit back, relax, and enjoy the AMAZING show he put on!

Ready to go...

In between sessions, lunches, dinners and nights out, we found time to do some more exploring... Unfortunately is was raining most of the time apart from our last morning... hence, most of our pictures were taken then...

Inside the Winter Gardens

We also met two of the nicest people ever, friends of a friend, from Ireland.

The Irish contingent...

Dearbh, Kelly and Ferg

What a friend!

 Dinners out... and Dearbhla (the Meath Rose) modelling her sash!!!

As usual, our adventures were...eventful..... we had such a great time and finally being at the Crucible was so special, especially the result after 17 days!

Bring on next year!
