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

Gaelic Games have a unique capacity to lift the spirits but they also have created many extraordinary moments. In the GAA world the truth is stranger than fiction and often funnier. This book celebrates the extraordinary moments in the GAA’s long and distinguished history. Representing all counties, it features Gaelic football, hurling, ladies’ football and camogie.

Read about the star player who grabbed Ger Cunningham’s balls; Sean Boylan’s experience in the maternity ward; what happened when Pat Spillane took the DART; Ger Loughnane and the night life in Amsterdam; Paidi O’Se and the tractor; the Galway icon who did not wear his socks; the Meath legend’s love affair; Clare’s sex scandal; the tender affection to a top pundit; the man who silenced Joe Brolly; the Dublin star who runs like a chicken; Garret Fitzgerald’s flirtation with hurling; Jack Lynch’s inspiration; and the GAA and Lady Diana.

An uplifting must-read for all sports fans and lovers of Gaelic Games.
