    DescriptionSince the legend of Cuchulainn, the Irish have always had a fascination with their sporting heroes, with their tales of derring-do, their habit of clinching victory from the jaws of defeat and, of course, with the endless retelling of these stories. In Sporting Legends of Ireland, sportsmen and -women across all disciplines are chronicled, with a focus on those players who, though as skilled and committed as any professional, were for the most part gifted individuals in an amateur world. It includes stories of players and gentlemen in a time when the Celtic Tiger largely passed them by and tells of the first Grand Slam and the Lions tour where the call-up was simply, 'Bring your own shirt.' It also records pivotal moments in Irish sporting history from the perspective of the heroes themselves. Fully illustrated throughout with specially commissioned photographs and including 44 exclusive interviews with key sportspeople, Sporting Legends of Ireland is a stunning document of Irish sporting achievement that will provide many a talking point for fans nationwide.
