Adrian Russell is the editor of the popular sports news site The42.ie. He has also worked as a sports journalist with the Irish Examiner and Today FM. He has an MA in Journalism from DCU and this is his first book.
One of the greatest Irish sporting stories finally gets the brilliant book it deserves. A forensic and entertaining trip through a championship season like no other, it has the narrative arc of a Marvel comic epic albeit with a peculiarly Cork cast of superheroes named Billy, Larry and Teddy. We all know how it ends yet Adrian Russell retraces the undulating journey in such gripping detail that you will savour every single step. - Davey Hannigan
