Semi-final line-up to be established

After 13 weeks of darts action throughout the county any missed darts at doubles are beginning to count. 33 100+ checkouts have been recorded so far, with over 50 180’s. The semi-finalists will be known after this week’s action.    Flanagan’s and Creaton’s will be sweating it out until midnight at least to know whether they have made it or not, and McDermott’s must have a good night in the Elf Inn to guarantee their progression. Murray’s and Spell’s are nearly certain to qualify, and although Mac’s, The Elf Inn and Kate’s quest for the title has ended, they are sure to want their league to end on a high.   The home and away semi-finals are set for February 15th and 22nd, with The Cup and Shield Finals in Hannon’s Hotel, Roscommon Town on Sunday the 2nd of March.  Hannon’s Hotel Roscommon County Darts League Table After Week 13.  Murray’s Played 13/ 65 points; Spell’s 12/58; McDermott’s 13/56; Creaton’s 13/53; Flanagan’s 13/52; Mac’s 13/38; Elf Inn 12/36; Kate’s 13/22.
