The $\beta$ decay of 61Ga to its mirror nucleus 61Zn has been measured for the first time by using on-line mass separation and $\beta$-delayed gamma-ray spectroscopy. The observed decay strength to the ground state implies superallowed character in accordance with the systematics of the mirror decays in the sd and fp shell. The $\beta$ feedings observed to four excited states in 61Zn are consistent with earlier spin-parity assignments based on in-beam experiments. The ground-state spin and parity for 61Ga were determined to be 3/2-.
