VIDEO: A few pints didn't stop this darts beginner from nailing an amazing trick shot in a Mayo pub

They like to live dangerously in Charlestown.

Christmas is not just a time for family and friends, it’s a time for darts, with the PDC World Darts Championship providing plenty of entertainment until the first weekend of the New Year.

As is the case with Wimbledon and tennis, darts coverage on TV means an increase in the amount of ordinary punters giving it a go at this time of year and we can only recommend that you don’t try and replicate what a couple of bucks got up to in a pub in Charlestown in Mayo recently.

After a few pints in Hayden’s Bar, local man and JOE reader Sean Mulvaney decided to test his accuracy on the dartboard; as a man that doesn’t regularly play darts he wanted to see if he was any good at it.

That’s all well and good, but to up the stakes a little, a good friend of his, Sean Quinn, spread his hand on the board and challenged the novice to hit a target between his fingers.

Brave? Yes. Silly? Absolutely. But what followed was a type of magic better than anything you’ll see from the Phil Taylors and Michael van Gerwens of this world over the next week or two.

Treble 19 on the button. Nailed it.

Cheers to Sean Mulvaney and Jack Reilly for sending this our way. If you have something you would like to share with us, send it to editorial@joe.ie or hit us up on Facebook or Twitter
