Micheàl Ã" Muircheartaigh is best known as the voice of the GAA. But his interests and enthusiasms - sporting and non-sporting - go far beyond the fields of Gaelic games. In his new book, the follow-up to his bestselling memoir From Dùn Sìon to Croke Park, Micheàl brings us along on his travels around the world, and to the villages, townlands and sporting fields of the four provinces of Ireland. He recalls great days at the races - dogs and horses - and on the golf course, and in sporting stadiums great and small. Above all, he tells the stories of these places - stories told as only Micheàl can tell them.
