The winners of the award were UCD who are now in with a chance of winning a place in the Europa League next season. They also receive €4,000 for winning the competition.
Cork City took third place in the competition which was confined to Premier Division teams.
The competition is based on points system with points awarded or deducted by the match delegate at each Premier Division match for red and yellow cards, positive play and the behaviour/attitude of players and team officials.
UCD must now await the completion of UEFA's Respect Fair Play ranking which is based on all UEFA competition matches played at both club and national team level, from May 1, 2012 to April 30, 2013.
