McIntires 5-2 Biddy’s

McIntires got revenge for their Cup final defeat the previous weekend with a 5-2 win over Biddy’s in Roartys to secure a League and Shield double for the Dunkineely side, results of this match will be available shortly.

Mike Naulty of McIntires was crowned Player of the Year following an unbeaten singles and doubles season (Dermot McGuire and Anthony Gallagher were in contention for this also) he also won the Bridge Bar Summer League and Benny Gillespie Cup, he also had the most 180’s with 6 (John Gallagher of O’Donnell’s was in second place with 4), Mike also had an 11 dart finish in The Rusty to secure the least number of darts leg.

McIntires Richie Cunningham had the highest Checkout of the League season (130), on this John McGinley had 145 and 170 finishes in the Cup Final but under league rules the finishes have to be hit during the league itself a rule that can be changed at the AGM if the subject is brought up.

Finally on behalf of the committee we would like to thank all who took part in this season’s league, players, publicans, supporters etc the AGM will be held in September.
