With the departure of Seamus Keane and Stephen Dempsey from the club, NUIG's pool and snooker teams were sure to be weakened for the up-and-coming events. However, after strong starts to the SSI league, the 3 teams arrived in Dundalk and made their presences felt, with the A team qualifying for the Trophy Championship as the B and C team were drawn against one another in the Plate. The B team went on to win the match, but were beaten in the semi finals by Waterford IT. The A team, meanwhile, made a convincing start to the Trophy after beating CIT and DKIT 6-2 and 6-1 respectively, before a thrilling 6-5 win over Queens "B" in the semi finals. However, they had no luck in the final as they were beaten 8-2 by a very strong Queens team. The singles this year was a dissapointment, with only Oisin O Domhnaill and Kevin McWeeney making the last 32 before defeat in these rounds.
With this, 5 NUIG players (Cathal Larkin, Brendan Gilbert, Glen Doyle, Oisin and Kevin) were invited to trials for the Irish student pool team for the Home Internationals in Dublin. Kevin and Glen made this team, with Oisin and Brendan both narrowly beaten in a 5-man playoff for the last spot. The NUIG team qualified for the finals of the SSI League but came crashing out in the group stages.
At the end of the season Glen and Kevin went on to represent NUIG at the Student Home Internationals for snooker in Glasgow, while outside of the academic year, Kevin and Oisin proceeded to make the national U21 team for the World Championships in Blackpool.
