Dundalk winger Daryl Horgan has been recognised by his Premier Division peers with the Professional Footballers' Association of Ireland Player of the Year award.

The Galway man helped the Lilywhites to their third SSE Airtricity League title in a row and was instrumental as the Louth side reached the FAI Cup final, against Cork on 6 November, and the group stages of the Europa League.

Last month Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill said that the 24-year-old would have made his squad for the Georgia-Moldova double-header had it not been for Dundalk's fixture schedule. 

Cork City’s Sean Maguire was named as the Young Player of the Year, while the manager of the year nod went, unsurprisingly, to Dundalk boss Stephen Kenny.

Norwich midfielder Robbie Brady, who starred for Ireland at Euro 2016, took the Irish Oversees Player of the year, while UCD Waves' Karen Duggan was the women's international player of the year.

Shane Duggan of Limerick was awarded the First Division player of the year as he helped the Munster side back to the top tier at the first attempt.
