William Hill Irish Sports Book of the Year names 2010 shortlist

24th November 2010

The six works in the race for the William Hill Irish Sports Book of the Year for 2010 title have been named.

A Football Man by John Giles, Bernard Dunne's My Story and The Club by Christy O'Connor are among the books competing for the award.

Ruby Walsh's Ruby, Days of Heaven by Declan Lynch and Tony Griffin's Screaming at the Sky completed the shortlist for the EUR 3,000 (GBP 2,535) prize.

Tony Kenny, public relations manger for William Hill in Ireland, said the selected titles can be considered the 'cream of the crop' in Irish sports writing.

'There are the stories of sporting legends mixed with some truly remarkable tales of real sports achievement intertwined with the real-life impact that sport can have on society and life in general,' he added.

In 2009, Donal Og Cusack won the William Hill Irish Sports Book of the Year with Come What May, which detailed his struggles in becoming Ireland's first openly gay sporting hero.

Other winners include Back from the Brink by Paul McGrath, Trevor Brennan's Heart and Soul and Crashed and Byrned by Tommy Byrne.
