Fergal made two successive tons during his 5-4 defeat to Barry Pinches in the final qualifying round of the Bahrain Championship last week.
The Dubliner turned professional in 1991 and has long been regarded as something of a grinder.
I can assure you that if that's all he is he would not have reached 100 centuries.
Let's not forget he came very close to winning the 2001 Wembley Masters, losing only after Paul Hunter's inspired comeback.
Fergal did win the 1999 British Open and was runner-up in last season's Northern Ireland Trophy.
I expect Joe Perry, currently on 91 career centuries, or Mark Selby, who has made 89 thus far, to be the next player to join this exclusive club.
Stephen Hendry remains top of the pile on 719 with Ronnie O'Sullivan on 544.
