Books Info:

Legends of Irish Rugby free pdf Immortals such as Jack Kyle, Willie John McBride, Tony Ward, Brian O'Driscoll, Gordon D'Arcy, and Paul O'Connell bare their souls to reveal men of vision, passion, and dedication - men who, through their glories, disappointments and dramatic deeds, have inspired others to realise their dreams. In this engrossing and entertaining account of the bitter-sweet history of Irish rugby, these powerful personalities offer startling insights into some of the most controversial moments of Irish rugby, from the assault on Ronan O'Gara, during the 2001 Lions tour to the sacking of Gary Ella as Leinster coach, and express their opinions on the most important issues facing the game today: from Brian O'Driscoll's hair to the role of the coach and the future of the game itself. Their take on the times is often as comical as it is insightful. Irish rugby has produced many extraordinary characters and left us all with a treasure trove of funny stories, most of which are recalled in this book, including Peter Clohessy's visit to the dentist and his Frank Sinatra impression- the curious incident of Mick Galwey's shorts- Geordan Murphy's unique insights into Austin Healey's recreational activities- Victor Costello's experience of crime and punishment- Keith Wood's tall tales and much, much more. Compelling, informative and above all humorous...
