Ciarán Teehan who plays his darts out of the Harp Bar has once again being successful in an Irish National Darts Organisation national competition when on Saturday night last in Galway the young Teehan won the INDO ranking event as he defeated some very well known and very experienced performers along the route.
Ciarán has been very much to the forefront here in local darts since his graduation from youths darts only just over a year ago.
Despite not having won any major singles championship locally in Cork Teehan has been knocking on the door regularly and has won three major doubles titles with his partner Jason O’Donovan, we haven’t heard the last or best of Ciarán Teehan yet by a long shot.
