September Sundays: As Heard on Sunday Miscellany
An eclectic mix of prose, poetry and more from the archives of Sunday Miscellany, celebrating 100 years of Croke Park.
This collection of writing originates from All-Ireland Sundays as heard onSunday Miscellany over the last decade. This wonderful selection captures the emotional magic of how the games connect with the joy and despair of this unique Irish experience. Each piece was written with a desire to communicate that something which makes September Sundays so special. The collection recalls many of the great matches of the last 100 years from Croke Park, as well as more recent unforgettable clashes.
It also includes celebratory pieces on particular legends who in their unique way have been so inspirational in their field over the years including Kevin Heffernan, Con Houlihan, Gary Mac Mahon, Ollie Walsh and Tim Kennelly. At the heart of the book are many personal stories through generations, and the undeniable draw of the events then and now.
Contributors include Theo Dorgan, Conor O’Callaghan, Cyril Kelly, Leo Cullen, Joe O’Toole, Tim Carey, Alan Titley, Cathy Power, Mary O’Malley, Catherine Foley, Joe O’Muircheartaigh, John MacKenna, Denise Blake, Willie Nolan, Martina Devlin, Tommy Sands, Peter Fallon and John Allen.
