Mick Egan wins Tommy Kenny Memorial Cup

The Widow Pat's Mick Egan won the 8th annual Tommy Kenny Memorial Cup held in Creaton's Bar, Loughglynn on Saturday last. Twenty-four hours after picking up his deserved Roscommon Sports Partnership Award for his darting exploits, Egan beat Wayne Harris 6-4 in the final of this well-supported tournament. It was originally due to be played last December but due to bad weather, road conditions and other fixtures, it was unable to be played before now. A total of 40 players from throughout the county took part on the day with the eventual winner recording earlier wins over Brendan Harrington (3-0); Cathal Hitchen (3-1); Martin Fleming (4-3); and Sean Fleming (5-2). It's the second time Mick Egan has won the Kenny Cup, having won previously in 2007. Thanks to the Creaton family for their hospitality and refreshments on the day which were outstanding yet again.
