Naulty Jnr is 2012 Paddy Byrne Champion

Michael Naulty became the youngest winner of the Paddy Byrne tournament following a 7-6 win over John McGinley the Pobal School Falcarragh student was well deserving of the title as he defeated some of the best players in the league on the day while John is still on five titles while Michael is the eleventh different winner of this event. Over all it was a great day of darts with final and both semi-finals going to deciding legs and lots of 180s and high checkouts on the day defending champion Kieran Carr narrowly lost to John Gallagher in the last eight while both semis could have easily went either way.
