Seán 'The Dragon' Gallagher has been crowned winner of 'Charity Lords of the Ring'.

The Cavan businessman beat showbiz reporter Paul Martin, who had been favourite to win the show.

Gallagher won the competition following a split decision by the show's judges, Jimmy Magee, Pat Spillane and Brian Peters.

As Gallagher replaced Joe O'Shea, who had to pull out of the show after picking up an injury, the winning charity pot of €26,000 will now be divided between their two charities: The National Council of the Blind and Royal National Lifeboat Institution.
