Horgan named Player of the Month for May
Dundalk’s Daryl Horgan was this morning unveiled as the SSE Airtricity/Soccer Writers’ Association of Ireland’s Player of the Month for May.
The former Cork City ace has been in superb form of late and had scored five goals in as many matches up until the club’s last outing against St Patrick’s Athletic, with four of those strikes coming in May.
He pipped team-mate Chris Shields to the award as well as Limerick FC’s Danny Galbraith, Gary McCabe of Shamrock Rovers and St Patrick’s Athletic duo Conan Byrne and Christy Fagan.
He is the first Dundalk player to win the award this season although team-mates Pat Hoban and Richie Towell were winners last year.
Horgan will be part of Stephen Kenny’s plans for tomorrow night’s trip to the Brandywell to face Derry City and for Tuesday’s Europa League clash against AS Jeunesse Esch in Luxembourg.
