100 Great Gaa Teams – Forward by Anthony Daly
They are the chosen few who have drunk from the chalice of immortality. They are the men and women who have been part of the 100 GREAT GAA TEAMS.
For GAA fans, our great teams bring colour and richness to our lives. When our team is on a winning streak it imbues us with a deep feeling of solidarity and a glow that uplifts the spirit. Great teams have that special power which energises and connects us. They inspire, make our hearts beat faster and let us dare to dream.
All the great and the good are here: Jim Gavin’s Dublin; Brian Cody’s Kilkenny, Mick O’Dwyer’s Kerry; Christy Ring’s Cork; Seán Boylan’s Meath; Ger Loughnane’s Clare; Mickey Harte’s Tyrone; Nicky Rackard’s Wexford; Galway’s three-in-row; Liam Sheedy’s Tipperary; Mayo’s team of the 50s and many more. 100 GREAT GAA TEAMS is a fantastic tribute to the great teams in football, hurling, camogie and ladies’ football that have thrilled fans down the years.
