Concannon makes it four-in-a-row

Last Bank Holiday Monday saw the annual Martin Kelly Cup being contested in the Hollywood Bar with David Concannon completing a stunning fourth win in a row. Also competed for on the day was the prize for Best Lady with Katrina Behan taking the title.

  The men’s final was played out by two familiar figures on the Roscommon darts scene, John Paul Feeney and David Concannon, who went toe to toe with the Ballinaheglish man coming out on top with a 6-4 win. Well done to both players on a top class display.  

  Outside of the darts on the day, this competition has always raised funds for worthwhile causes and this year was no different as a huge €550 was raised in aid of Ronald McDonald House. Many thanks to all who helped support this very worthwhile cause. Thanks also to the generosity of the sponsors of prizes on the day and those who purchased raffle tickets.

  The cup and shield results from last weekend were as follows: Creaton’s 2 Charlie’s 5, The Hatch 3 The Forge 4, Creaton’s 2 Ned’s 5, The Forge 4 Hollywood 3, An Bothar Rua 5 Charlie’s 2, McDermott’s 7 Flanagan’s 0.

  This weekend sees the cup semi-finals taking place with the teams listed first enjoying home advantage this week: McDermott’s v An Bothar Rua, The Forge v Ned’s. The shield semi-finals also take place this weekend: The Hatch v Flanagan’s, Charlie’s v Hollywood. Both cup and shield finals will take place in Hannon’s Hotel on Saturday, April 23rd.
