Brady, Coleman & Horgan among nominees for FAI International Football Awards

Robbie Brady, Seamus Coleman and Daryl Horgan are among those to be nominated for the 2016 FAI International Football Awards.

After a year that saw him shine at Euro 2016, Brady finds himself in three different categories and he is up against Everton star Coleman and Burnley team-mate Jeff Hendrick for the Senior International Player of the Year award.

Both Brady and Hendrick are in the frame for the Young International Player of the Year award, with Brighton defender Shane Duffy also nominated after a breakthrough year for the Boys in Green.

As well as being nominated for both the Senior and Young International Player of the Year, Brady could take home the Goal of the Year award for his winner against Italy at Euro 2016. Wes Hoolahan’s goal against Sweden at the tournament is also nominated, along with James McClean’s crucial strike against Austria.

Preston midfielder Horgan, meanwhile, is one of the nominees for the SSE Airticity League Player of the Year after a campaign that saw Dundalk compete in the group stage of the Europa League and win their third league title in as many years. The Galway native faces competition from his team-mate Andy Boyle and Cork City’s Sean Maguire.

The awards ceremony will be broadcast live on RTÉ 2 on Sunday, March 19.
