Fiachra Meere has won the Paddy Power Irish Masters Champion and with that comes a €150,000 pay day. 423 poker players took part in the event.

First organised in 2001, the festival is headlined by the Irish Masters main event, a Texas hold'em tournament, and typically takes place over the three days of the October bank holiday weekend.

Irish Masters Poker past winners were:

2007 Reuben Peters

2006 Roland De Wolfe
