Paul ‘Rinty’ Monaghan Becomes an Irish Poker Tour Ambassador


The Irish Poker Tour is delighted to announce that Paul ‘Rinty’ Monaghan is to be our new Tour Ambassador with particular responsibility for the northern poker community.

Rinty is ideal for this role as he is almost certainly the most liked and respected poker figure in Ulster and surrounding areas, as well as being a great poker player in his own right.

In fact, Rinty made back-to-back final tables in the Irish Poker Tour Stop in Dundalk earlier this year.

He has built an amazing cross-community poker base in his club through his positive and friendly personality.

He supports all poker players and shows such respect to everyone that he automatically receives the same respect and affection in return.

Rinty says that he is excited to represent the Tour and that he can hardly wait to play all over Ireland meeting old friends and new ones in Galway, Killarney, Cork, and all points in between.

He sees his role as one of bringing people together in an enjoyable but competitive environment and that there is nothing to compare with the Irish Poker Tour for achieving this goal.

See you on the road Rinty.
