The Mixed Reaction To Lee Keegan Being Named Opel Footballer Of The Year

The Mixed Reaction To Lee Keegan Being Named Opel Footballer Of The Year
By Conall Cahill Updated

Lee Keegan won Footballer of the Year at the Opel GAA All Star Awards on Friday evening. Keegan beat fellow nominees Brian Fenton and Ciaran Kilkenny (both of Dublin) to win the award.

There were many who felt that Keegan did indeed deserve the award, but there was a substantial body of criticism - many of whom were Dublin fans, it must be said - who felt that Fenton should have taken home the award for his barnstorming performances from midfield for Dublin.

The esteemed sage Joe Brolly was among those in favour of Keegan winning the award as well as Shane 'Cake' Curran and former Armagh sharpshooter Stevie McDonnell.

But (mostly) Dubs fans weren't having it.

Tipp hurling legend Lar Corbett made the interesting point that the voting system and the fact that two Dubs were nominated might have harmed Fenton's chances.
