Product Description


For Paidi O'Se football is not an interest, its an obsession. His ruthless drive on the playing field took him from the remote Corca Dhuibne Gaeltacht to the steps of the Hogan Stand. A peerless defender, eight All-Ireland medals with Kerry did not put the brakes on his relentless journey. As the Kingdom lost its majesty in the wake of Mick O'Dwyer's extraordinary reign, Paidi became possessed with a messianic zeal to lead the Green and Gold back to glory. However, he had first to convince the sceptics. As a manager he has ridiculed his critics. His professional organisation, tactical know-how, courage and passion have marked him apart and confounded those who cannot handle his uncompromising stand, juxtaposed as it is with his mirth and exuberance. Ventry, his mother, Croke Park, the players, O'Dwyer, Maurice Fitzgerald, the Dubs, the Haugheys, the Gardai, the fun, the States, the pub...Paidi's life, an Irish life on the edge.

Format: Paperback
Raw, but straight from the heart. Showing the trials and tribulations of the 'amateur' game on top level players today and in the past.
