Dempsey McGuigan has once again set another record for Donegal and Ulster.

He managed 66-62 in the hammer throw at Baton Rouge, Louisiana State University.

He returns home from his university base in the U.S shortly and will then chase further career improvement in the season ahead in Europe.

This is the second Ulster record for a Finn Valley Athlete in 7 days with John Kelly setting a new mark in the shotputt earlier this week.
