• We Are Rovers: An Oral History of Shamrock Rovers FC

Shamrock Rovers are part of Irish Football heritage and this books charts the history of Shamrock Rovers Football Club, the victories and defeats, the trials and tribulations, the highs from the start to the present in the voice of its fans, managers, players and owners. The author, Eoghan Rice, is a journalist based in Dublin who has supported Rovers since childhood. Having become a supporter in 1990 he wrote this book to show that League of Ireland Football and Rovers in particular 'isn't a side-show, it is part of the global football narrative, just without the millionaire stars and twenty-four different camera angles.' With exclusive interviews with controversial former club chairman Louis Kilcoyne and Hollywood legend Maureen O'Hara (a lifetime Rovers fanatic), together with over 100 images charting the club's remarkable history, this book will appeal to anyone with an interest in Irish sport.
