Leitrim midfielder Wayne McKeon has been rewarded for his superb displays in helping Leitrim win the Connacht GAA FBD Football League title by being selected as the Connacht GAA Writers Personality of the Month for January.

McKeon, who has switched from wing-back to midfield this year, was outstanding as his side saw off Roscommon, Mayo, GMIT and Sligo to win the Connacht GAA FBD Football League crown for the first time.

It was Leitrim’s first senior trophy since they won the 1994 Connacht title and the Sean O’Heslins’ clubman was the pivotal figure in their success.

McKeon will be presented with his award at the Connacht GAA Banquet at the end of the season.
