Munster rugby star, Jack O’Donoghue from Woodstown is the Park Hotel Sports Star Award winner for the month of January.
He played five games for Munster during January, including three European Champions Cup games and two Pro12 games.
Without doubt his standout performance was a brilliant display in Munster’s 9-7 win over Ulster in Belfast. A display that drew plaudits for O’Donoghue from all over the game. Since then Jack has been an ever present in the Munster team and only last week he was called into the Irish squad for the final two games of the Six Nations Championship, thus becoming the first Waterford man since Ben Cronin in the mid 1990s to be called into an Irish senior squad. This is Jack’s first Park Hotel award and rugby’s ninth in all as the awards scheme begins its 26th year.
