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
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
Compete in Munster Inter-Counties
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.
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
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.
