Andy Moran is one of the most respected and admired Gaelic Footballers of his generation. The former two-time All-Star, Footballer of the Year and Mayo team captain has written a compelling account of his journey through the sport he loves, told through vignettes about the mentors who influenced him, teammates who’ve inspired him and the games that made him.
This is a book about Mayo football - the agony and the ecstasy, the near misses, the friendships, but it has a much broader canvas.
Andy - Lessons Learned in Pursuit of Glory does exactly what it says. It tells us how sport can influence every aspect of a players life; of how the game of football moulded the writer himself; of the life lessons that sport teaches all of us; and how a good coach can have a life-changing influence on a young athlete. It is also an homage to his native Mayo, a county that has captivated the country season after season through daring deeds and epic comebacks, all in the pursuit of glory.
Colin Sheridan is a columnist for the Irish Examiner and freelance writer and producer whose work has appeared in The Times (Ireland edition), RTE, Hot Press magazine and the Mayo News. He has lived and worked in Ireland, West Africa, Afghanistan and the Middle East. This is his first book.
