Donegal player Ryan McHugh has received recognition for his skills on the pitch as he has been named the winner of the Ulster Writers Association Merit Award for the month of July.

Ryan has displayed great skill and speed while playing for his county team, and looking back on his performance in the Ulster Final gives an example of why he deserves this award.

Ryan is the third person from his household to claim the award - his dad Martin and his brother Mark are previous winners.
