Competition time and we’ve got a copy of Eddie Ryan’s ‘The Little Book of GAA Facts’ to give away, courtesy of our friends at Mercier Press. Impress your friends and colleagues with your endless trivia knowledge, but make sure to keep it tucked out of sight.
In ‘The Little Book of GAA Facts’, Eddie Ryan has gathered together a treasure trove of knowledge about a nation’s passion. The book charts the history of Gaelic games, blending amazing stories and unique facts, records and outstanding achievements. For example, did you know that in 1924 Mick Gill created history by winning two All-Ireland Senior Hurling medals in the same year and for different counties? Or that the 2013 All-Ireland Hurling Final was the first to be played under floodlights, exactly 100 years after Croke Park was first purchased?
Eddie Ryan is the sports writer for ‘Ireland’s Own’ and is very active online in all the major GAA forums. He lives in Templemore, Co. Tipperary.
