Congratulations to Andrew Gillespie on winning the 2017 Benny Gillespie Darts Tournament beating his team mate John Meencha in the Final. A very high standard of darts on display all day topped off by these two meeting in the Final. A great display all day from the youth of the area insuring that darts will be going strong for years to come. Both Aidan Mc Ginley and Ryan Mc Brearty making it to the quarter finals on the night. In a play off match between the two Aidan came out on top to claim "Best youth" on the day. Prize of highest finish on the day went to John Con with a magnificent 167 finish. A lot of the results don't give a fair reflection on how close some of the games were, the standard was really high and some just didn't get a second chance at a double. On another day results could be different. A huge thank you to all 36 who entered and all who assisted with the running of the tournament in any way.

Prelim round.
