Connacht out-half Jack Carty is on a four-man shortlist for the Irish Rugby Players' Player of the Year Award.

Carty's become Connacht's record point scorer this season and also enjoyed a breakthrough year at international level, winning three caps in the Six Nations.

Leinster second-row James Ryan and Munster forwards Tadhg Beirne and Peter O'Mahony are also in contention to win the prize.

Ryan is also shortlisted for the Nevin Spence Young Player of the Year Award, alongside his Leinster teammate Jordan Larmour and Ulster winger Jacob Stockdale.

Ryan says he's honoured to be nominated for both awards.

"Pete, Tadgh and Jack have all enjoyed excellent campaigns and it has been a pleasure to share time with them in Irish camp. We have had some fantastic moments this year including that unforgettable win over the All Blacks in Dublin, but we have also learned many lessons along the way.

"It’s important to recognise and celebrate achievement but we’re also looking forward to some important games in our season still to come."
