NOMINEES FOR THE ‘Three’ FAI International Awards have been announced, with late RTE broadcaster Jimmy Magee to be the recipient of the 2018 Special Merit Award.

A three-man shortlist for International Player of the Year sees James McClean, Shane Duffy and Darren Randolph pitted against one another, while Megan Campbell, Denise O’Sullivan and Harriet Scott are nominated for Women’s International Player of the Year.

Duffy has also been nominated for Young Player of the Year, alongside Cyrus Christie and Callum O’Dowda, while McClean’s strike in Cardiff which booked Ireland’s place in the World Cup play-offs will go up against Jonathan Walters’ goal versus Austria and another McClean strike against Uruguay for Goal of the Year.

The ceremony, which will be held on 18 March, will also see the ‘Hall of Fame’ and ‘International Personality’ awards announced on the night, with Magee to be honoured posthumously for his coverage of football at home and abroad in a career which spanned six decades.
