Micheals GAA Odyssey

Micheals GAA Odyssey (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Since its establishment in Thurles on 1 November 1884, the GAA has born some of the most memorable and captivating events in Irish history. From the 'Bloody Sunday' massacre in 1920 to the lifting of Rule 42, which banned 'foreign' games from GAA grounds, the Association's often turbulent history has mapped the changing political and social landscape of the Irish nation. Yet, throughout its existence, it is the story of its games and the heroic players who graced them that resonates strongest. From the 'Thunder and Lightning' hurling final of 1939 to the emergence of Ulster's first All-Ireland champions in 1960, and from Offaly's denial of Kerry's bid for immortality in 1982 to how Dublin and Meath's epic four-game battle in 1991 rescued the GAA, hurling and football have produced some of the most wonderful moments in Irish sport. Micheal O Muircheartaigh's magical radio commentary has provided a lyrical and highly engaging soundtrack to those great occasions for five decades, and in "Micheal's GAA Odyssey" he provides a comprehensive guide to all things GAA.

From the sublime to the ridiculous, Micheal details the people, places and moments which have made the GAA the most unique sporting organisation in the world.
