John Con McGinley rolled back the years when he won the 2018 Con Sean in dramatic fashion.
The 2008 and 2012 winner was in fine form on the day as he defeated Michael Leech 6-5 in the final. All the games went with the darts up until Michael came from 5-3 down after the broke the throw to level it at 5-5 and missed one dart at double to win it.
But overall McGinley was a deserving winner to round off a great day of darts in The Rusty, John beat Antony Gallagher 5-0 in the semi while Michael beat two times winner Dermot McGuire 5-1.
There was almost 60 players at this year’s event, the 20th anniversary of the Con Sean affair.
The organisers would like to thank The Rusty for hosting, to all players, checkers and markers for helping make the day such a success.
The 2019 Con Sean will be back at its normal date in January.
Highest checkout of the day was a 160 by Antony Gallagher in the deciding leg of his quarter-final match against Orin McDermott.
