The nominees for the main categories in the 2023 SSE Airtricity Women’s Premier Division Awards have been announced ahead of a Ceremony in Clontarf Castle on Thursday, November 23.
The list of nominees and winners were collated from votes from players and a select committee made up of members of the media and League observers.

Shamrock Rovers duo Lia O’Leary and Scarlett Herron are also in the mix for the Young Player of the Year award, while Galway United’s Phil Trill and Shamrock Rovers’ Collie O’Neill are nominated for Manager of the Year.
A couple of categories have already been decided following the conclusion of the League campaign with Peamount United goalkeeper Niamh Reid-Burke claiming the Bank of Ireland Golden Gloves for her 11 clean sheets and Athlone Town forward Dana Scheriff winning the EVOKE.ie Golden Boot after scoring 13 goals.
