Fermanagh professional Brendan Dolan hopes the Weigh Inn Irish Open this weekend will kick start his season again. The Belcoo thrower currently 14th in the world and number one in Ireland suffered a last 16 exit at the recent World Matchplay championships. Dolan, a regular at the Omagh based series was beaten 13-5 by Adrian Lewis on a day best forgotten by him.
Dolan will not have it all his own way at the Irish Open though. With a £9,000 prize pool on offer some of the country’s top throwers will be on the oche.
The annual Festival gets under way on August 16th with the Weigh Inn open, double in –double out with £1,000 up for grabs on the opening night which will be played to a finish.
Dolan and his fellow professionals are regulars at the Weigh Inn and Dolan despite his elevation to the top twenty in the world carried out the tournament draw last week and was delighted to be coming back to what he described as “a superb dart venue”
“The Weigh Inn Open is the one event always pencilled in my diary, the Omagh venue has been good to me and I really enjoy the atmosphere and the darts, I’d like to win it too mind but its great to be competing against so many big names, all the lads on the circuit talk about it and they all want to win it “ enthused the Fermanagh man.
