Monday night coming will see the knockout stages of the Cork Darts Organisation Fosters sponsored First and second division cups will begin with four quarterfinals being held at the Joshua Tree and the Local respectively.
The quarterfinals line up at the Joshua Tree tonight has Baker Street taking on Hennessy’s and Old Reliable facing off against Quinlan’s.
Baker Street lost out on top spot in section one due to the head to head result between themselves and the Gallows who go straight into the semifinals and Quinlan’s also lost out on top spot in section two by one point to the Gerald Griffin following what they will consider a disappointing 4-3 win at home against bottom side the Groves.
The winners of the quarterfinals will return again to the Joshua Tree on Monday night next February 18 for the semifinals and final with the Gallows and the Gerald Griffin awaiting the outcome.
The CDO Fosters second division cup quarterfinals will be decided at the Local on Military Hill and the line up here has Aunties playing St, Vincent’s and Blackpool Sports Tavern playing the Shamrock Bar with section toppers Carrigaline GAA and the Local awaiting the winners on Monday night February 18 also at the Local for the semifinals and final.

Kathryn Hewitt, Aisling Ferriteur, Rita Hannigan and Kathleen Doyle all had 2-0 wins against Ciara Haugh, Kelley Ford, Siobhan Keohane and Breda Barrett respectively with the solitary win for the Joshua Tree coming from Eileen Jones win over Lillian Walsh.
