2009 Leo Molloy winner Brendan Dolan being presented the cup by Aaron Molloy

Brendan Dolan from Belco, Co. Fermanagh won the 10th Annual Leo Molloy Darts Tournament for the fourth time the tournament was held in Kilcar on Saturday the 7th February.

 

Brendan defeated SWDDL player and 2006 winner John McGinley 5-2 in the final, with the match tied at 2-2 John had a number of darts to take a 3-2 lead but Brendan snatched that leg which many feel was the deciding moment as Brendan won the following two legs to retain the cup, in the semi finals Brendan beat O’Donnell’s player John Gallagher and John got revenge for his recent Con Sean defeat beating Anthony Gallagher of Roartys.

 

In the local tournament held in Kilcar House on Sunday evening James Byrne came from 2-0 down to defeat Michael Molly in the final.

 

The organising committee would like to thank the sponsors Smithwicks, our hosts for the event Kilcar House, John Joes and O'Gara’s Bar, all the players, markers and anyone else who helped out.
