Jimmy Magee to be honoured at International Awards
The Football Association of Ireland is delighted to announce that the late Jimmy Magee will be named as the Special Merit Award recipient at this year's 3 FAI International Awards on Sunday, March 18.
The ceremony, which will be broadcast live on RTE2, will include a unique tribute to a broadcaster who elevated Irish football to a new level through his passionate and skilled style of commentating.
The FAI always maintained a strong relationship with Jimmy and was deeply saddened by his passing last September. So it is only fitting that he will be honoured with the Special Merit Award.
The full list of nominees for this year's 3 FAI International Awards will be revealed on Friday, March 9.
