Adrian Butch Devine with Ellie Rawdon

Adrian Butch Devine is the 2022 Pat Rawdon darts singles champion following a hard fought 6-5 win over Dermot McGuire in the final held in the Bayview Hotel on 23rd April, over 50 players entered and the standard was top class on this the first hosting of the event at the Killybegs venue the losing semi-finalists were Christopher McBrearty and Cartha Boyle. Defending champion from 2019 John Con McGinley was defeated 4-1 by Kenneth Kennedy in the preliminary round while John Porter hit 8 perfect darts and wired double 12 also in the preliminary round for what would have been a 9 dart leg which would have been a first for one of our local tournaments.  

In the shield final it was Ron Seddon from Belfast who overcame Stephen Harron in a great final, Eoghan McGill and Declan Cunningham were the defeated semi-finalists.

Thanks to the management and staff of the Bayview Hotel for their hospitality on the day for hosting the event and for the sponsorship of the shield. Thanks to the board sponsors: The Bayview Hotel, Murrin Fisheries, Reggie’s Sales and Service, SRM Car Sales, TrailerStuff.ie and GCM Painting. Thanks to all who entered and helped with marking the matches that helped the event run smoothly and we will be back bigger and better next year with a bigger prize fund and the event will be held in the main function room so everyone can get a better view of the boards.
