REVEALED! Winner of Downey's Auto Stop/Leinster Express Sports Star of the Month for February

After another closely contested battle, we can now confirm the identity of our Sports Star of the Month for February, in association with Downey's Auto Stop.

The poll-topper on this occasion is Laois senior footballer Gary Walsh, whose brilliant form at full-forward has guided Laois to four wins from four in NFL Division 4. Walsh played three games in February, scoring 2-21 in the process for an incredibly average of nine points per game.

He saw off stiff competition from five other nominees in what had been a brilliant month for sport in Laois. Mary Mulhare from Portlaoise AC had come in second, Laois senior hurler Ross King was third and St Abban's triple-jumper Saragh Buggy was fourth. Wayne Kelly and Michael Nevin from Portlaoise Boxing Club were the other nominees.

Congratulations to Gary, and thanks to everyone who voted.
