The Heart and Soul of Kerry Football, Hardback Book


Why has Kerry, in the rugged south-west, won more All-Ireland Gaelic football championships than any other county?

It's a fascinating question, and The Heart & Soul of Kerry Football provides plenty of answers. Weeshie Fogarty tells stories about the great players he played with and against, Kerry's intense rivalries and its outstanding captains.

He extols the handing down of a unique tradition, and explains why the increasing profile of girls and women bodes well for the future of the sport.

Weeshie also selects his all-time most skilful/classy/stylish team, which is sure to spark debate in the homes and pubs of Kerry. Gaelic football is the very heartbeat of Irish life and culture, both in the Kingdom and beyond, and players and coaches from the most successful county have grown the sport in Ireland and internationally. This unique book reveals the living heart and soul of Kerry football.
