'Whatever is said about Ireland’s financial state, the Irish ability to indulge their passions and their idols is legendary. Here is a wonderful collection of heroes from all aspects of sport, from athletics to horse racing, some familiar, others less so. A reference book, an inspiration, and very much more than a glimpse into the Irish world.
