Lee O'Connor has been named the FAI's U21 International Player of the Year.

The Celtic midfielder has been rewarded for a season that saw him make his senior international debut in November's friendly with New Zealand.

O'Connor's win follows him picking up the U19 version of the award a year ago.

In winning the U21 international player of the year award, O'Connor follows in the footsteps of current senior captain Seamus Coleman, Robbie Brady and Jack Grealish.

His Celtic team-mate Jonathan Afolabi was named U19 Men's International Player of the Year.

Derby's Jason Knight's been dubbed U18 Men's International Player of the Year.

In the same wee as he was named Manchester City's Scholar of the Year, Joe Hodge wins the U17 international award.

Meanwhile, Shamrock Rovers midfielder Jack Byrne was named SSE Airtricity League Player of the Year.

The diminutive playmaker made his international bow against Bulgaria last year, before starting in the 3-1 friendly win over New Zealand.

Galway native Sadhbh Doyle is named as the Under-19 Women’s Player of the Year and Cork’s Eabha O’Mahony picks up the Under-17 Women’s award after producing stellar performances at their respective age levels.

Winners in the remaining categories will be revealed later this week.
