William O’Connor has reflected after Ireland’s brilliant run to the final of the World Cup Of Darts where him and Steve Lennon lost out to Scotland.

O’Connor said that before hand, he would have snapped your hand off to get that far. But now he admits that they need to dream bigger and that they will be back next year to try and go one further.

“If you’d told me we would be in the World Cup Final before the tournament I would’ve taken it all day long,” said O’Connor. “But I’ve come to realise you have to start dreaming, and if the dream doesn’t scare you then you’re not dreaming big enough.

“So I knew we could do it and it’s a pity we didn’t go that one step further but I’m over the moon. “I’m proud to represent Ireland and I was proud to lead Ireland with Steve into the World Cup Final. We’ll be back next year to give it another go.
