Neil Gallagher has capped a fine season by adding yet another individual gong to his collection after being awarded the Donegal Senior Player-of-the-Year award.
Gallagher was sensational for Donegal last summer and his consistent performances ensured Donegal regained the Ulster SFC title.
He almost helped Donegal win their second All-Ireland crown in just three years.
However, Donegal were heartbreakingly defeated by Kerry in September’s decider.
Gallagher was also influential for Glenswilly in this year’s Donegal SFC and was their outstanding performer in the final against St Eunan’s.
Unfortunately for Gallagher, just like in September with Donegal, Glenswilly came up shot against their bitter rivals.
Gallagher is expected to remain in the Donegal set-up under Rory Gallagher and has no intentions of walking away into the sunset.
Gallagher won his second All-Star award in October and is regarded as one of the best midfielders in the country.
His experience, class and quality will be vital for Donegal in the forthcoming 2015 season.
Gallagher will receive his award at the ceremony in the Abbey Hotel this Saturday night.
