Entries invited for 2019  Con  Sean Darts Tournament

It's one of Donegal's most popular annual darts tournaments and it takes place on Saturday, January 19th.

The Con Sean Darts Tournament, now in its 21st year, will once again be staged at The Rusty Mackerel in Teelin.

The 2018 event took place much later than usual - back in October - but the 2019 event returns to its normal January date and the organisers are lookkng forward to another successful event.

Back in October, John Con McGinley took the honours with a dramatic 6-5 win over Michael Leech in the final.

It brought an end to John Flood's amazing run of victories in the tournament - he had won four-in-a-row prior to October.

There are no entries on the day. Players are asked to leave names on the Facebook event page or by calling into The Rusty Mackerel or texting 086-9969256.

The draw will be made in advance and first games are at 3pm.

Players should note that accommodation is available at The Rusty. 

€1000 in prizes guaranteed. €10 to enter. Open to all players.
