Two Awards for Wayne McKeon

Wayne McKeon picks up two awards following his dynamic displays for Leitrim in the FBD League.

Connacht GAA Writers Personality of Month for January

Midfielder Wayne McKeon has been rewarded for his superb displays in helping Leitrim win the Connacht GAA FBD Football League title by being selected as the Connacht GAA Writers Personality of the Month for January.

Wayne, who has switched from wing-back to midfield this year, was outstanding as his side saw off Roscommon, Mayo, GMIT and Sligo to win the Connacht GAA FBD Football League crown for the first time.

It was Leitrims first senior trophy since they won the 1994 Connacht title and the Ballinamore Seán OHeslins clubman was a pivotal figure in their success.

Irish Independent Sports Star of the Week

Whats seldom is wonderful, which is why no one begrudged Leitrim some early-season celebrations after they claimed Connachts FBD League title.  Beating Sligo to win what was only the fourth senior trophy in their history, and their first title in 19 years, gave the Division Four side a great pre-league boost.  And at the heart of everything was Ballinamore Seán OHeslins Wayne McKeon, their regular wing-back, who has been making a name for himself in a new midfield role that best showcases his great engine.
