Robbie Brady scoops three awards at the Three FAI International Football Awards

Robbie Brady won both the Senior International Player of the Year Award and the Young International Player of the Year Award at the Three FAI International Football Awards tonight in Dublin.

The Burnley star also scooped the Goal of the Year Award for his crucial header against Italy at Euro 2016, the goal which sealed Ireland’s progression to the knockout stages.

“I’ve been fortunate enough on this one, the other two nominees (Jeff Hendrick and Seamus Coleman) had fantastic years,” Brady said.

“I’m honoured to have just pipped them, but it’s a massive honour for me and for my family. This for me is a massive achievement and I’m over the moon.”

All-time Ireland top goalscorer Robbie Keane was also inducted into the FAI Hall of Fame on the night, and the 36 year old reaffirmed his intention to continue his career.

Callum O’Dowda won the Under 21 International Player of the Year Award, and former Dundalk winger Daryl Horgan picked up the SSE Airtricity League Player of the Year.

Karen Duggan earned the Senior Women’s International Player of the Year Award, and John Hartson was chosen as this year’s International Personality.

Dundalk FC were chosen for the Special Merit Award. Stephen Kenny’s men won the Airtricity League last season and embarked upon an historic run in the Europa League.
