Former Mayo senior football manager James Horan has been announced as the winner of the Muintir Mhaigh Eo Atha Cliath Mayo Person of the Year for 2015.

Despite being named in the program to start the game at midfield Ballina native Gavin Duffy was a late withdrawal from the starting line up before throw-in on Sunday in the second round of the FBD League against IT Sligo in Ballina.
