The People's Games : A GAA Compendium, Paperback / softback Book

The People's Games : A GAA Compendium Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


For over 130 years the GAA has been at the heart of Irish life.

Hurling, ladies' football, camogie and Gaelic football are Ireland's greatest national treasures and are at the core of our local communities.

Now bestselling author John Scally tells the compelling stories of the men and women behind the Gaelic Games' rich history. This captivating volume - full of insights, anecdotes and revelations about famous incidents and epic encounters - brings the heart-stopping drama of the people's games alive.

Based on exclusive interviews, it captures the GAA's unique history - not through statistics but in the enthralling tales of the men and women who made it all happen. With a focus on landmark events such as Bloody Sunday, the age of television and the dark days of the Troubles, John Scally explores the links between momentous times and the real people of the GAA.
