Dundalk FC to receive Special Merit Award from FAI

Dundalk FC are set to be honoured with a Special Merit Award for their performances in Europe last year at this Sunday’s ‘Three’ FAI International Football Awards.

The club will accept their prize at the weekend at RTÉ Studios with the event set to be screened live on RTÉ Two from 8pm.

As well as the award for the club, former players Daryl Horgan and Andy Boyle, have also been nominated for the SSE Airtricity League Player of the Year award alongside Cork City’s Sean Maguire.

Both Horgan and Boyle have since departed for Preston North End with recent performances earning them a place in the 39-man provisional Republic of Ireland squad for the forthcoming World Cup Qualifier with Wales on Friday week and the subsequent friendly at home to Iceland.
