Darts finals

The Roscommon Darts team travelled to the West County in Ennis last weekend to take part in the INDO All-Ireland inter-county tournament.

  Having beaten Wicklow and Limerick 7-5 in the group stage, Roscommon came up against a strong Donegal side in the last 16.

  Following the first four games, both sides were locked on two games apiece. Donegal then took control, however, and the eventual runners-up ran out 7-2 winners. Donegal were beaten by Offaly (7-6) in the final.

  Roscommon were captained by Thomas Concannon, who was outstanding all weekend and was a semi-finalist in the singles event. The rest of the panel also performed admirably with Ciaran Hickey enjoying his debut and impressive performances from JP Feeney, Damien McGovern and James Sharkey.

  A disappointing end to the tournament but plenty of positives to take home and the future of Roscommon Darts looks bright.

  Closer to home and this week sees the cup and shield semi-finals taking place. McDermott’s take on The Forge and Dalton’s entertain An Bothar Rua in the cup while The Hollywood welcome Creaton’s for a chance to take on Flanagan’s in the shield final.
