Finn Valley AC’s John Kelly has set a new Donegal Shot Putt record.

The Leaving Certificate Student became the first Donegal athlete to throw beyond 15 metres at the official opening of the Ben O’Donnell Track at Lifford AC.

Last year, Kelly broke the county record when he threw 14.12m - finally beating the record held for over 70 years by Dungloe's John Gallagher.
