The annual Kanter Media FAI Communications Awards were presented on Friday at the Arklow Bay Hotel.

The awards, now in their third year, applaud those who use various communications tools to tell a particular story about, or promote an aspect of, all levels of Irish football.

Near FM were  recognised in the Best Regional Broadcast Item for their commentary and coverage of the FAI Junior Cup final, and extensive coverage of the Bus Éireann Women’s National League throughout the year and during the recent Northside Football series.

Congratulations to the production team of Gay Graham, Paul Loughran, Edd Kealy, Dave Hooper & Fergus Carroll. And thanks to John Healy, Alan Weldon & John Doyle who assisted on the production at various stages.
