LUFC Leeds defender wins top Ireland award
Leeds United on loan defender Darren O`Dea has been named the Republic of Ireland young player of the year.
O`Dea is currently on a season long loan from Glasgow Celtic and he has been a regular in the Leeds starting eleven this season.
The 25-year-old played his part in helping Republic of Ireland qualifying for the summers European championships in the Ukraine and Poland.
O`Dea partnered Richard Dunne at the heart of the Ireland defence as they held qualifying rivals Russia to a 0-0 draw in Moscow.
The result helped Ireland secure a play-off place, where they beat Estonia over two legs to qualify for this summer`s final tournament.
O`Dea beat Simon Cox -West Brom and Seamus Coleman - Everton to the award.
Fellow Leeds defender Aidan White was on the shortlist for the under 21 award but he was beaten to the award by Robbie Brady.
