Good weekend for Roscommon Darts

Last Saturday the inaugural All-Ireland B competition was held in The West County Hotel, Ennis with a determined Roscommon side making the most of the event and coming within touching distance of beating the eventual winners and taking a finals place.

  The initial stages of the competition were in a Round Robin format, and Roscommon found themselves in a difficult group alongside Limerick, Kilkenny and Laois. Roscommon lost 6-2 to Limerick, beat Kilkenny 6-2 and beat Laois 5-3.

  Defeating Galway 5-1 in the quarter-finals, they lost a classic semi-final against Mayo, after being 4-0 ahead.

  Special thanks to Martin Fleming for all the work he has put in with the group of players, starting back at the West Coast Challenge in February and more recently in the weeks coming up to the event.

Concannon on the double: In the INDO National Singles in the West County Hotel, Ennis a number of Roscommon players were in action on both Saturday and Sunday. David Concannon’s eventual triumph on the double was further evidence of his current stature in the sport.

AGM: The Roscommon Darts AGM will take place this Friday 18th September at 8.30 pm in Hannon’s Hotel. All teams must have at least one representative present to vote on any proposed changes to format, etc.

Well done Ken: Well done to Ken Turkington who won last weekend’s Round Robin in the Hollywood with a win over JP Feeney in the final. Summer Round Robins will continue in The Hollywood Bar, Roscommon town this Friday.
