The Con Sean Darts Tournament is set to get underway on January 19th following last year’s delay.
In a statement, the event organisers said they hope the can run the event as ‘smoothly and quickly’ as they can.
The statement said: “The Con Sean is back on its usual time of year following last year’s delay and will continue from now on around the same time going forward.
“We understand it’s been only a few short months since the event was held but as it was the landmark 20th anniversary we had to host it in the calendar year.
“If players are on time we can run this event as smoothly and quickly as we can as we acknowledge the capacity in the venue is not as big as other venues but with players co-operation we can have another successful day.
“Following last year’s dramatic final can John Con retain the title or will we have a new name on the cup as many fantastic players have yet to win this event?
“The same as usual no entry’s on the day so leave your names on the Facebook event by calling into The Rusty or texting 086-9969256 we will have draw made in advance and first games at 3pm.
“Accommodation also available at The Rusty.”
