For over 130 years the GAA has been at the heart of Irish life. Since the introduction of television Gaelic Games have become a huge entertainment industry, yet at their core remain deeply embedded in the local community. They shape the national conversation and lift the mood of the nation. Hurling, ladies' football, camogie and Gaelic football are Ireland's greatest national treasures. The people are the beating heart of the Games and Gaelic Games are part of the DNA of the Irish Race. Now, this comprehensive collection captures the GAA's evolving history; the fabled heroes; the controversies; the scandals; the pulsating games; the fans; the centrality of the clubs; and the unending and heart-stopping drama. Full of fascinating insights, amusing anecdotes, thrilling tales and new revelations about famous incidents and epic encounters, this volume brings the people's games alive in all their vibrancy. Based on exclusive interviews this captivating compendium completely captures the rich history of the GAA - not through statistics but in the compelling stories of the men and women who made them happen.
