Eric Bristow MBE-- ("The Crafty Cockney") (born 25 April 1957) is a former professional English darts player, whose skill at the game in the 1980s helped turn it into a worldwide spectator sport. He is a five times World Champion and is renowned still as the 'Biggest ever name in world darts'. Eric does not play competitive darts any more but tours the UK speaking on the after dinner circuit and entertaining audiences on darts exhibitions.........

Keith Deller-- (born December 24, 1959 in Ipswich) is an English darts player, who won the Embassy World Professional Darts Championship in 1983. He was the youngest player and the first qualifier ever to win the championship. Dutch player Jelle Klaasen took his record as youngest ever winner in 2006.

Deller's victory over Eric Bristow in the tournament by 6 sets to 5 was probably the biggest upset in the history of the championship. He also beat world number 3, John Lowe in the quarter finals and defending champion and world number 2, Jocky Wilson in the semi-final to become the only player in history to defeat the world's top three ranked players in the World Championship. The champion's prize money in 1983 was £8,000.

Under 16 Football / Peil Faoi 16


An Céide 2-03 Tomás Dáibhis 4-11 09 Bealtaine 2013

Thomas Davis under 16’s got back to winning ways with a great away win at Keady last Thursday night. Played in very wet conditions both sides defences took a while to adjust to the fast ball into the forward lines. We opened the scoring with a Conor Jennings point quickly followed with a Declan Loye goal, a great solo run and a neat return pass from Matthew Loughran left the keeper no chance. The home side replied with a goal well worked from their own defence. Both sides were trading scores point for point until the home side finished another move to our net, this gave them the upper hand as we had the advantage of the breeze. But our lads responded immediately, a great kickout from Ronan McMahon was ably fielded by Lee Courtney who ran through the heart of the Keady defence with Caolan Marron supporting him off the shoulder, put him straight through on goal hitting it hard and low to the corner of the net, that was the game changer as our lads piled on the pressure hitting 3 further points leaving it at halftime 2-06 to 2-03.

Although leading, we faced a very strong breeze which the Thomas Davis lads understood would require a bigger work ethic to maintain their lead & win this game so for the next 30 minutes the played like never before. First to every ball and great support play made sure we got the next 3 points in the game & a good 6 point lead. Keady were now forced into counterattacking but great defensive work from Dean Faloon, Aaron Cinnamond & Breandáin McCorry continually turned defence into attack, which lead to Declan Loye hitting an unstoppable shot to the top corner of the net. With 10 minutes left Jonny Tumlity sealed the victory with a great individual goal, further points from Caolan Marron & Lee Courtney finished off a great night that will live long in the memory as the lads kept Keady scoreless in the second half playing against a strong breeze to run out eventual winners 4-11 to 2-03.

Senior Football / Peil Sinsir

Thomas Davis Corrinshego GFC 1-9   St. Patrick’s  Dromintee II  0-1

Once again the men in maroon played in dreadful underfoot conditions  to record another win and remain undefeated in their league.

Just like last week in Darkley, the weather was very poor with constant rain which left large puddles all over the pitch.  Corrinshego started  with another changed line up, most notably young David Hankin making his senior debut in goals and Seamus Morgan  coming in at corner forward, after his recent  pro-longed transfer from Carrickcruppin.

On 2 mins a good  ball fielded by D. Lenaghan fed Stepen Trainor who crashed the ball of the crossbar. One minute later  after good inter-change between A.McCourt and  Shane Mc Ardle, put D. McGreevy straight on goal, but unfortunately his effort went narrowly wide. On 6mins Ryan O’Reilly had another shot  wide, but Ryan atoned for this error when on 8mins when he scored the opening  point after  a very good kick –out by D.Hankin.

Moments later Ryan O’Reilly had  made it 0-2  after being put through by D. Lenaghan. On 10mins Dromintee raised a white flag to leave it  0-2 to 0-1. Stephen Trainor settled the nerves with a point on 13mins. Two minutes later Corrinshego were unlucky when a 45m went narrowly wide from R.O’Reilly. On 18mins Niall McVerry was fouled when he was about to score but the resultant free dropped short. On 22minutes R.O’Reilly  scored from a free after James Dinsmore  was fouled.  On 25 mins Paul Heatley replaced N. McVerry and immediately made an impact when he   delivered a great ball to D. Lenaghan who in turn extended the Corrinshego lead. On the stoke of half –time Shane  McArdle scored another  point to leave the score at half-time 0-6 to 0-1.

On the resumption Neil Markey replaced the  veteran Aidy McCourt and made an instant impact  by scoring a point  on 31mins. Moments later a high ball by Neil Markey  was punched on by Paul Heatley but  James Martin in the Dromintee nets saved the effort. On 36 minutes Mark Bradshaw replaced Mark Mc Ateer at half back. On 38mins  a good movements resulted in a low shot to the Dromintee net by danger man Neil Markey. On 47 minute  substitute Cathal Trainor went on a run and  scored a fine point to make it 1-8 to 0-1. The game went through the motions for the remaining 13minutes with Corrinshego shooting many wides until Paul Heatley scored on the 57min to leave the final score 1-9 to 0-1. There were many positives in this game such as the debut of both Seamus and David but the wide count of 24 plus is a concern. Next week we play the mighty Pearse Ogs   which might determine  who wins this league! All at Corrinshego would like to wish the ‘daddy’ of the team Adrian McCourt a very Happy  37th Birthday tomorrow!!
