Description


Croke Park is the spiritual home of Gaelic football and hurling, where the dreams of ambition are realized. The essays in Voices from Croke Park chart the journey of twelve true greats of the games: men who pursued that elusive glory in Ireland's greatest sporting arena, players whose passion and vision were embodied in their county's jersey. With contributions from Ireland's leading and award-winning writers, this collection is a celebration of each player's achievements in the GAA. It is a paean to the heroes who take to the stage every year carrying the hopes of their county. Each player profiled in Voices from Croke Park has helped shape the rich history of football and hurling, and their stories are vividly brought to life by the writers who reported on their heroic deeds on the playing field first time around.
