The 45th, Annual General Meeting of the Cork Darts Organisation was held recently at the upstairs Lounge of the River Lane Bar on Blarney Street.
The big news to emerge from the meeting was the election of a new chairman in Mark Farrell who takes over the helm from retiring Chairman Frank Goulding while also joining the new look committee will be Robert O’Donovan sitting as Treasurer.
Robert’s father, was the late and former long serving and much respected Chairman of the CDO Roy O’Donovan, also Secretary Paul McGarry has stepped down and his replacement is Martin Cotter.
The following were returned to guide the Cork Darts Organisation for the 2022/23 season;
President, Michael O’Connell, Chairman Mark Farrell, Vice Chairman, Sean Leahy, Secretary Martin Cotter, Treasurer Robert O’Donovan, Registrar Richard Moloney, committee, Frank Leahy, Allison Carroll Goulding, Mary O’Connor, Don O’Shea, Paul McCarthy, Garry O’Connor and Peter Glavin.
The new look committee has begun doing business immediately and will hold their next delegate meeting on Tuesday night at 8.30pm for Quinlans Bar on the Watercourse Road.
Teams intending to play this upcoming darts season should have a representative at this delegate meeting and also have full team and individual player registrations along with the appropriate entry fee at this meeting.
The draws for all divisions of the upcoming leagues, both ladies and men’s will be made at next weeks delegate meeting of Tuesday September 13 which will be held at the Joshua Tree on Blarney Street again here at 8.30pm.
The importance of having teams enter as early as possible cannot be emphasised often enough as early entering of teams gives the various members of the committee time with regrading and other matters which has to be completed for the making of the draws for all the various competitions on a set timescale, so your cooperation is greatly appreciated in this matter.
Competitions across all divisions of the men’s events will commence on Monday September 19 with the first round of games in our double round leagues which will take us up to the Christmas break while the ladies will start on Thursday September 22 with a full series of games.
A new venue has been acquired by the Cork Darts Organisation for our major competitions and it is the Glen Hurling and Football club, with the new year doubles and the Easter Monday darts gala down for decision first on the books with hopefully many more dates to follow at this historic club.
