Mike Russell played in Northern Ireland a few years ago. He was wonderful to watch in the Queens Hall in Newtownards. He had a 546 break. Then, on the very next night in the West Club in Belfast he had a wonderful 1001 break. I don't think that Northern Ireland will ever see billiards like it again.
