Because of their successes, the premier football counties occupy a very prominent position in the book. Not forgotten, however, are the large numbers of great players who did their counties proud on representative teams but sadly never achieved championship greatness themselves. Likewise, Giants of Gaelic Football includes outstanding players from weaker counties, players like Mickey Kerins of Sligo who would have walked onto any team in the country at any time.

The true greats are all here: Mick O'Connell (Kerry), Sean Purcell (Galway), Jimmy Murray (Roscommon), Paddy O'Brien (Meath), Brian Mullins (Dublin), Sean O'Neill (Down), Jimmy Barry Murphy (Cork), Willie Bryan (Offaly), Larry Stanley (Kildare), Tommy Murphy (Laois), Mick Higgins (Cavan), Jim McKeever (Derry) and many, many more.

Giants of Gaelic Football is a book for every lover of the game to treasure.
