Happy St Patrick's Day!

NORWICH City's Robbie Brady and Wes Hoolahan are both in the running for the Republic of Ireland's prestigious 'Senior International Player of the Year' award.
Stoke City's Jonathan Walters makes up the three-man shortlist, with the winner set to be revealed at the 2016 Three FAI International Awards on Sunday night.

Brady is also up for two other awards: he will compete with Derby County duo Cyrus Christie and Jeff Hendrick for 'Young International Player of the Year', while his vital away strike in Martin O'Neill's side's European Championship play-off against Bosnia & Herzegovina last November is up for 'Three International Goal of the Year'.

Left-sided Brady, along with City's longest-serving player Hoolahan, helped Ireland qualify for their second successive Euros where they will line up against Belgium, Italy and Sweden in a tough-looking Group E this summer.

The pair were recently named in O'Neill's provisional squad for friendlies against Switzerland and Slovakia later this month.
