Pettigo’s Jarlath Leonard is the latest Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub Sports Person of the Week, in association with O’Reilly’s Sportswear.
Last weekend, Pettigo overcame Red Hughs 1-11 to 2-6 in the Junior B Championship final replay.
The win saw Pettigo toast a first Championship success since 1953.
They had to do it the hard way, coming from 2-5 to 0-5 behind at half-time, to defeat Red Hughs in the Junior B final replay. Leonard was immense for the Pettigo men, scoring two points in a magnificent display.
And there is further cause for Leonard to celebrate as he banged 935 votes in this week’s poll.
Leonard had 45 per cent of the 2,077 votes cast to stave off competition from Gaoth Dobhair’s Odhrán Mac Niallais, who got 807 votes.
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.
