The Three FAI International Awards takes place this Sunday at RTÉ and the association today released the full list of those nominated and the selected winners in the 18 categories.

None of the trio of Brady, Hoolahan or Walters have ever won the most prestigious award in Irish football and few could gripe with their nominations, given the roles they played in getting Ireland to France next summer.

Indeed, Norwich’s Brady is also up for Young International Player of the Year – alongside Cyrus Christie and Jeff Hendrick- and for the Three International Goal of the Year, for his pivotal strike against Bosnia Herzegovina in the first leg of the Euro 2016 playoff.

Walter’s goal against Georgia and Shane Long’s spectacular match winner during Ireland’s epic win over Germany at the Aviva Stadium are also in the running.
