    Jason Sherlock grew up in Finglas, North Dublin. As the son of an Irish mother and Asian father, he experienced racism throughout his childhood. On the playing fields and basketball courts however, he found acceptance, along with a new-found discipline to fend off the daily taunts.

    Sherlock represented Ireland in under-21s soccer, captained its basketball team and spent his summers winning hurling trophies in Cork. But in 1995 his life changed overnight as he was plucked from the fringes to become the best-known star in the GAA.

    Over the next decade and a half, Dublin failed to win another All-Ireland and Sherlock became utterly obsessed with trying to get back on top. In 2009, he was dropped from the Dublin panel, his self-worth plummeted, and he started to label his career as `fourteen years of failure'. Not content to wallow for long, he began the fight to get his place back on the team...

  • The Last Painting of Sara de Vos

    Hand-picked favourites
    Written by Dominic Smith, this captivating read tells of a 17th century painting that links three lives across three continents over three centuries. In 1600s Amsterdam, Sara de Vos loses her daughter suddenly and turns to painting in her grief. She creates the artwork of a dark landscape of a girl watching an ice skater from the edge of a wood.

    In 1957 in New York, Martijn de Groot has this painting - At the Edge of a Wood - hanging above his bed. When it's stolen, he is bereft. Meanwhile, struggling art student Ellie Shipley agrees to forge the painting for a dubious art dealer. Finally, we arrive at Sydney in 2000 and Ellie is now a celebrated art historian and curator. She's curating an exhibition about the female painters of the Dutch Golden Age but then it becomes apparent the original version of this painting and her forgery are en route to the museum.

    Exhilarating from start to finish, this book is one you won't want to put down. Full of period detail and with its intriguing premise that threatens to see Ellie's life and reputation spiral out of control, it's a rewarding and elegantly written read.
