John Con wins Con Sean for second time

2012 Con Sean winner John McGinley with Francis McShane

Fifty eight players took part in the fourteenth Con Sean darts singes tournament held in the Bridge Bar, Carrick on Saturday 21st January, with holder John Flood unavailable to play it was a chance for a local to get their name on the cup. After several hours of action on the four boards the board winners were: John McGinley, Andrew Gillespie, Michael Naulty and Antony Gallagher. John defeated Roartys teammate Antony 5-2 and Andrew Gillespie beat young Michael Naulty also 5-2 in the semi finals. In the final John quickly went 2-0 up with 40 and 20 finishes, Andrew took the third leg with a 64 check out before John raced into a 5-1 lead with 40, 64 and 61 finishes he also had a 180. Andrew took the next three legs with 78, 36 and 90 checkouts to take him within one leg for a deciding game both players played a great next leg with Andrew just missing a 137 to tie things up but John made no mistake checking out 86 in two darts to give him the title for the second time. Apologies again for the late ending this was due to the slowness in players arriving at the venue.

Thanks to all the checkers, markers, ticket sellers and of course players who took part and helped on the day, Oliver and the staff of the Bridge Bar also thanks to Raymond O’Donnell, Adrian McGuire, Currans Shop, Quigg’s and Sliabh Liag Bars, Sean Byrne, Jimmy Doogan and anyone else who helped out in anyway during the day and €250 was raised in the raffle.
