Keane Barry is the Junior World Darts champion after beating Adam Gawlas at Alexandra Palace on Saturday afternoon. 

The win caps a memorable year for the 17-year-old Meath sensation, who became the youngest Irish player ever to compete at the PDC's World Championship last Monday.

Earlier this year, Barry, from Duleek, won the Tom Kirby Irish Matchplay, the Junior International Open, the BDO's Youths World Masters and the Junior Darts Corporation International Open.

Barry will also contest the BDO's Youth World Championship final against Leighton Bennett next month, a week before the PDC's Q School event where he will attempt to win a full Tour card for next year.

Speaking to RTE Sport about Q School, he said: "If it doesn't happen now, it's not the end of the world. I've a good few years to get it, and if I do get it I just have to be mentally ready to play against the likes of Michael van Gerwen, Peter Wright, Gerwyn Price week in, week out. You are not going to win every game you play so you have to be mentally prepared."
