9780141399669: The Club

This chronicle of a year in the life of St Joseph's Doora-Barefield GAA club in Co. Clare - which won the William Hill Irish Sports Book of the Year award for 2010 - breaks new ground in Irish sportswriting. Christy O'Connor, a national GAA correspondent who has also been the St Joseph's senior team goalkeeper for 20 years, tells this story with unflinching honesty: a fly-on-the-wall tale of the effort, agony and struggles that define the journey undertaken every season by every club side. This is grassroots GAA at its purest and rawest, a great story brilliantly told.

Review:

To understand Ireland, you have to understand the GAA. To understand the GAA, you have to read this book. A masterpiece. (Tom Humphries)

An extraordinary saga - unflinching in its honesty. This book is to hurling what Eamon Dunphy's seminal Only a Game? was to soccer writing

(Richard Fitzpatrick Irish Examiner)

This is one of the best sports that has been written in Ireland. You'll cry a lot, if you have a soul. And if you love sport, you'll love this book.

( Ger Gilroy)

Deserves its place among the most courageous Irish sports books ever conceived, and one of the finest ever written

(Michael Foley Sunday Times)
