Special thanks to David Molloy of Glenside Bacon who supplied food for the large crowd. The Highlands Hotel sponsored accommodation of which was much appreciated. All Sports in Donegal Town kindly sponsored a dart Board. Conal Herron was a very natural MC for the night and also thanks go to Michael Boyle and John Dubh Ward who looked after the scoring side of things.
