Dublin boss Jim Gavin has been named Philips Sports Manager of the Year.

Gavin led Dublin to Allianz Football League and All-Ireland Championship success, their first double of the kind in 20 years. 

Dublin beat Tyrone to win the league and Mayo to claim to All-Ireland, winning both matches by a single point. 

Prior to his appointment to the senior team in 2012, Gavin had successfully managed their Under-21 side, winning both Leinster and All Ireland titles. 

Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Tourism & Sport, Michael Ring TD, presented the award in Dublin this afternoon.
