New Republic of Ireland Under-21 manager Stephen Kenny has been named SSE Airtricity/SWAI Personality of the Year for 2018.

It's the third time that Kenny has received the award and it came after he led Dundalk to a league and cup double as his parting gift, before ending a hugely-successful six-year spell at Oriel Park to take up his latest role with the FAI.

Dubliner Kenny is set to replace Mick McCarthy as Ireland senior boss after Euro 2020.

Aine O’Gorman received the International Achievement Award after calling time on her Ireland career in 2018. The Peamount United star won 100 caps for the Girls in Green over a 12-year period.

Meanwhile Goalkeeper of the Year went to Shane Supple, who was a key player for Bohemians last season. 

The 31-year-old Supple earned a call-up to Martin O’Neill’s Ireland squad for the first time but he was forced to retire from the game in November due to a persistent hip injury.  

Vincent Hoey picked up the Special Merit Award for his years of service to the game as long-serving Drogheda United chairman.
