Shane Duffy and Harriet Scott take top billing at Three FAI International Awards

Tonight's 'Three' FAI International Awards saw Shane Duffy and Harriet Scott steal the show tonight as the Senior International Player of the Year and Senior Women's International Player of the Year respectively.

Duffy, who had been nominated for the Senior and Young International Player of the Year awards, scooped the big prize on the back of a stand-out 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.

The Senior Women's International award went to Scott - who quickly established herself in Colin Bell's side - ahead of nominees Megan Campbell and Denise O'Sullivan.

James McClean's match-winner against Wales in Cardiff was selected as the 'Three' International Goal of the Year, while Cyrus Christie was named as the Young International of the Year.

A special tribute was reserved for Ireland centurion Damien Duff as he was inducted into the Hall of Fame following a fantastic career that saw the former underage star become a fan's favourite at senior level.

Former Ireland assistant manager and World Cup winner Marco Tardelli was named as the International Personality, while the recipient of the Special Merit Award was the late Jimmy Magee.
