Gaelic football and hurling have a language all of their own. From Micheal O Muircheartaigh and Micheal O hEithir to managers, players and fans, the GAA is home to an endless array of quotes and quips

This collection of quotes, some well-known and others more obscure, also includes extracts from letters, laws and conversations that champion the traditions and lifestyle of these uniquely Irish sports and their place at the heart of our culture.

A celebration of players, supporters and sport, this book is a slice of Irish tradition and humour rolled into one.
