Details: Product Description The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Gaelic Football & Hurling is a comprehensive, single-volume work on two of Ireland's most popular sports. They combine skill, athleticism and courage in a wonderfully exciting mix, arousing passions throughout the country and great rivalries between not just county teams, but the teams of each parish too. The GAA is the governing body and is based at Croke Park which hosts the finals of the All-Ireland Championships in both games each September. This book gives one of the best overviews of the two sports, explaining the rules, the development of each and looking at the players and managers who have made the sports the successes they are today.
