About this product
- DescriptionFor 125 years, the GAA has been a fixed point in a fast-changing age, and this oral history marks the 125th anniversary of the Association. It is the story of the GAA as seen through the eyes of those key personalities who shaped it. Author Jon Scally has carried out over a hundred revealing interviews with players and managers who are synymous with the Games, including Babs Keating, Jimmy Barry-Murphy, Ger Loughnane, D.J. Carey, Liam Griffin, Mick O'Dwyer, Colm O'Rourke, John O'Mahony Joe Brolly and Matt Conr, and these contributions offer a unique eyewitness testimony to the dramas that captivated, enthralled and occasionally infuriated the nation both on and off the pitch. The book sheds new light on high-profile controversies, offers new insights into the players and personalities that linger long in the memory and presents a fresh look at the epic contests that turned Ireland's Games into a national soap opera. The GAA: An Oral History is a celebration of the good, the bad and the beautiful of Gaelic Games, and is a must for all sports fans.
