2015 – 2016
Whitehall Colmcilles Darts Club was formed in 2015, with an initial membership of 23 players. Generously sponsored by co-founder Fran Hughes (Fran’s Barbers) the team competed in the North City Wednesday Blue section, finishing a highly creditable fourth in our first season.
2016 – 2017
The 2016-17 season saw the team again compete in the Wednesday Blue league. This time we weren’t to be outdone and we emerged as league champions. It was a fantastic season all round, with us also reaching the semi-finals of the Junior Cup, and Paul Fagan and Mick Farren reaching the final of the league doubles competition having won the divisional title along the way.
2017 – 2018
With the championship winning team now promoted to the Jimmy Owens League, along with an ever-growing number of members, it was decided to form a second team to maintain a presence in the Wednesday league.
Our Tuesday team enjoyed a successful first campaign in the top flight, finishing the season in sixth place.
Our new Wednesday team also had a fantastic season, finishing third in their league.
2018 – 2019
This season has seen yet another rise in membership, with 36 players signed up between both teams. With things going well on the oche, we are also enjoying significant success behind the scenes, with a number of new sponsors coming on board.

The Wednesday team had a record-breaking season, becoming the first wednesday league team ever to win the League & Junior Cup double. In a hotly contested battle for the Wednesday Blue league the guys kept their nerve and their focus to close out the season unbeaten, eventually finishing three points clear of runners-up, Craobh Chiaráin.
The Junior Cup final was a match up with the winners of the Wednesday Red league, Salmon’s of Blanchardstown. In a tightly fought affair it was Mick Creedon who hit the winning double to bring the trophy home.
