Raphoe ABC Boxer Leah Gallen is this week’s Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub Sports Person of the Week, in association with O’Reilly’s Sportswear.
Gallen won the 66kgs final at the Irish Senior Cadet Championships last weekend in Dublin.
The Raphoe ABC ace – who earlier this year won the Irish Girl 6 title – stopped Sophia Hopkova in the third round of Saturday’s final.
That came after she overcame Abi Sutton of Drimnagh in Friday night’s semi-final.
Gallen now hopes to be selected for the European Junior Championships in Russia later in the year.
Gallen edged out fellow Twin Towns native Avril McNamee – who won her title at the World Handball Championships in Minnesota.
Gallen had 715 votes, 39 per cent of the 1,853 votes cast, while McNamee had 663 votes – a difference of just 52.
Each weekly award winner will receive a kitbag, a jersey and a half-zip, supplied by O’Reilly’s.
O’Reilly’s Sportswear was founded in 2017 by well-known Twin Towns sporting brothers Steven and Martin O’Reilly.
