Book Description

1 May 2014

Sean Og O hAilpin, the iconic hurler of his generation, tells his own story.

Sean Og O hAilpin became synonymous with Cork hurling during a period when the Rebel County reached the highest of highs and was regularly gripped by controversy. Making his trademark barnstorming solo runs from left wing-back, Sean Og emerged as the lynchpin of the great group of Cork hurlers that won five Munster titles and three All-Irelands; in 1999 he contested All-Ireland finals in both codes. He was also central in standing up for players' rights against the Cork county board - a source of great controversy and two painful strikes.

Now, Sean Og tells his own story in his own words - a story every GAA fan has been waiting to read. Full of frank insights, Sean Og's autobiography is not just an essential sporting story; it is an essential Irish story.
