From The Irish Examiner `The man with the most recognisable voice in Irish broadcasting - and why not, after sixty years at the mike -- has produced a terrific account of the Dublin GAA inter-county story since the Second World War.' `Institutions don't usually write books, but how else would you describe Sean Og O Ceallachain?'

From The Irish Times `The great broadcaster ... examines the state of the game in his native county since the Second World War. A former Dublin hurler and footballer, O Ceallachain is well placed to observe the highs and lows.'

From The Irish Mail on Sunday `... a fine tribute to the county. A former Dublin player himself, it's O Ceallachain's first-hand experiences of Dublin's trials and tribulations since World War II that makes his tome extra special. His concise summaries of matches and shrewd analysis are also noteworthy.'

From Clare County Express `The Dubs is a superb production and an excellent chronicle of Gaelic Games...'
