THERE WAS DONEGAL success at the Ulster 9 Counties Novice Championship finals in Newtownstewart today.
Six Donegal boxers left the County Tyrone venue with titles after a busy day of action.
Raphoe ABC’s Tom Doherty added to his growing array of honours when he defeated Craigavon’s Ryan Henry in the Boy 4 91kgs decider.
