Egan to represent Ireland

The Widow Pat's and Roscommon Inter county darts player Mick Egan will be part of the Republic of Ireland six-a-side darts team that take part in the annual 6 Nations Cup in Scotland next weekend. The Six Nations Cup, featuring the national teams (men and women) of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, The Republic of Ireland and The Netherlands, will be played at the Erskine Bridge Hotel, Erskine, Renfrewshire on February 25th, 26th and 27th. English men and women will be defending the titles they won at last years running in Sligo, when John Boy Walton produced the first ever nine-darter in an international match. Mick Egan qualified for the team on the back of a very good run in last year’s INDO ranking season. He is wished every success on the weekend.
