Kerry Players Perform Well in Cork Charity Gala

 Sean Marshall, Shane Nolan and Marty O´Halloran.

 
Sean Marshall and Marty O´Halloran travelled to Cork on Sunday, March 7th., to compete in the annual Guinness Charity Darts Gala at Ardmanning House in Togher.   The Kerry duo performed extremely well on the day and from an entry of 50 top pairings they battled their way into the final where they came up against local County players, Chris O´Neill and Eddie Cull.

 

The lads from the Kingdom threw great darts in the final but the experienced Cork players, (who have both played for the Republic of Ireland), had too much finishing power and they kept the title at home with a 4-1 victory.

 

Kerry enjoyed some success at the tournament, however, with young Shane Nolan winning the under-13 Youths´ Singles event.
 

The Kerry players are now gearing themselves for another trip across Munster as they head for Tramore in County Waterford on the weekend of April 3rd/4th. for the Tramore Spring Festival at O´Shea´s Hotel.

 

On the Saturday they will be competing in the Tramore 7-a-side Inter-Counties Challenge for the first time while on Sunday they will be playing in the Open Singles competitions.
 
 
 

Kerry Compete in Munster Inter-Counties

Men´s and ladies´ teams from the Kingdom competed in the Munster Inter-Counties Challenge for the first time when they travelled to O´Shea´s Hotel, Tramore, on Sunday, December 7th.  and they acquitted themselves well against their more experienced opponents.    The men´s team were in tremendous form as they defeated Tipperary 7-5 in their opening match and were unlucky to lose 4-8 to both Cork and Clare. 

   

Under the guidance of Sean Marshall from Abbeydorney they fought back to defeat Waterford 7-5 and while they lost their final match 3-9 to Limerick they showed that they had plenty of talent in their ranks.

 

In the ladies´ event Rose O´Shea was Kerry´s best player winning two of her three games but she could not inspire her team-mates who faced very tough opposition from the likes of Cork, who had won this competition for the past three years and who are the reigning Irish champions.
