THE RESULTS are in from the return of the Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub Sports Person of the Week poll, in association with O’Reilly’s Sportswear – and it was a tight call!
There were a total of 2,137 votes cast this week.
Carndonagh CS student Ailish Doherty topped the poll, with some 860 votes – 40 per cent of the votes cast.
Ailish edged out boxer Denis O’Donnell in the battle, with the Ulster heavyweight champion taking 768 votes.
Carndonagh CS travelled to England last week and won the SAFIB Rod Houston Cup in Lilleshall. Carndonagh CS blitzed their opponents in style and their successful voyage ended with a 3-1 win over Welsh side Ysgol Glan Clwdy, Saint Asaph
Carndonagh also beat Crompton House School 4-2 and Shenfield High School, Essek 4-0. Ailish Doherty was on fire with six goals, including two in the final game.
Each weekly award winner will receive a kitbag, a jacket and a bobble hat, supplied by O’Reilly’s.
