Liam Gallagher wins Leo Molloy Darts Singles

 2015 Mens and Ladies Champions Liam Gallagher and Geraldine Harkin 

Some of the top players from the North West gathered in Kilcar for the fifteenth annual Leo Molloy Memorial Darts tournament held jointly in Kilcar House and John Joe’s we had over 70 players between the men’s and ladies tournaments with top class action from the off and in a change from other years we started all boards on time and everything ran smoothly as almost all players were at their designated boards when called, in the end it was young Liam Gallagher from Galway who added the Leo to the Pat Rawdon Cup he won in Killybegs in March he joins a list of well-known players like Brendan Dolan, Martin McCloskey and Sean McGowan who have won this event, while Geraldine Harkin won the Ladies Tournament that made it’s long awaited return beating Sharon Cunningham 4-1 in the final. In the men’s final Liam beat Sligo’s Antony Mularkey 6-1 while John Porter and Paddy Boyce from Donegal were beaten semi-finalists, Andrew Gillespie was the SWDDL player who did the best getting to the quarter finals while Declan Cunningham from the Donegal League also got to the quarters. Thanks to both venues for hosting the event and special mention to John Joe’s who had a lot of work to do to get the lounge ready following storm damage earlier in the year, thanks to all who sponsored prizes and who helped to mark and check matches and to all the players for making this a great success and a fitting tribute to Leo Molloy and we hope to build on this next year and so on.
