With 20 league goals, Sean Maguire fired Cork City towards their first title in 12 years before departing for Preston North End in July. Midfielders Conor McCormack and Gearoid Morrissey also delivered consistently during a memorable season for the Leesiders.

Dundalk finally released their grip on the Premier Division trophy after three years of dominance, but David McMillan was prolific in the box and Patrick McEleney appeared to be running his own goal of the season contest.
