Description

During the past fifteen years, the GAA has gone through a renaissance. Despite the rising popularity of other sports, it has revolutionised itself to take its place centre stage in the Irish sporting arena, enjoying a greater groundswell of support than ever before. The developments have been astounding. The emergence of Ulster football and the revival in the West. In hurling, the men from Clare and Wexford and the domination of D.J. Carey. The amazing development of Croke Park and the rise in supporters' fanaticism. 'Jayo-mania' in 1995 heralding the era of the GAA superstar. The strikes and revolts of the Cork and Offaly hurlers and the emergence of player power. In GAA: The Glory Years, Ronnie Bellew tells the story of these remarkable fifteen years - of the events, on and off the field, the breakthroughs, the controversies and the personalities behind a golden era that has seen the GAA reinvent itself to become the hottest ticket in town. This is the story of how the GAA got from there to here.
