Gaoth Dobhair ace Kevin Cassidy is latest Sports Person of the Week


Gaoth Dobhair star Kevin Cassidy was the runaway winner of this week’s Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub Sports Person of the Week award, in association with O’Reilly’s.

Cassidy got 571 votes, almost half of the 1,194 votes cast this week.

As Gaoth Dobhair overcame Scotstown in Sunday’s Ulster Club SFC final in Omagh, Cassidy rolled back the years in some style.

‘Cass’ drove Gaoth Dobhair to victory with a performance of pure Gaeltacht granite. Cassidy has been reborn at full-forward and pointed the way for Mervyn O’Donnell’s men.

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.



Sports writer from St Johnston, now based in Letterkenny, with ten years' experience covering sport in Donegal. Was a nominee for NUJ Sports Journalist of the Year in 2010. Honoured by the Donegal Boxing Board in 2016 for his coverage on the sport.
