The perfect gift.’ Brian D’Arcy

This delightful book will be enjoyed and cherished by GAA fans old and young.’ Dermot Earley

In these troubled times it often seems that sport is caught up in the storms. But Gaelic Games have a unique capacity to lift the spirits and this book celebrates some of the most extraordinary occasions in the GAA’s long and distinguished history – from Gaelic football and hurling to women’s football and camogie, across all counties.

There’s the star player who grabbed Ger Cunningham’s balls; Seán Boylan’s experience in the maternity ward; what happened when Pat Spillane took the DART; Ger Loughnane and the night life in Amsterdam; Páidí Ó Sé and the tractor; the Galway icon who did
not wear his socks; the Meath legend’s love affair; Clare’s sex scandal; and the man who silenced Joe Brolly.

A must for all sports fans or anybody who needs their spirits lifted.

In these hard times this engaging book will give a lift and a smile to GAA fans everywhere.’ Donie Shine
