Clay Pigeon shooter Jim Doherty of Newtowncunningham took the overall award at the 36th annual Donegal Sports Star award at the Silver Tassie on Friday night.

Doherty had an exceptional year, winning three of the four majors in the British Isles and his successes were rewarded by the organising committee. His shooting average of 98.3% best reflects just how well he did in 2011. That sort of success would be the envy of most sports, individual or team!
