A 'A Bit Of A Shemozzle' (Hardback)

Martin O'Duffy


Gaelic football and hurling have a language all of their own. From Micheal O Muircheartaigh and Micheal O hEithir to managers, players and fans, the GAA is home to an endless array of quotes and quips This collection of quotes, some well-known and others more obscure, also includes extracts from letters, laws and conversations that champion the traditions and lifestyle of these uniquely Irish sports and their place at the heart of our culture. A celebration of players, supporters and sport, this book is a slice of Irish tradition and humour rolled into one. "I love Cork so much that if I caught one of their hurlers in bed with my missus I'd tiptoe downstairs and make him a cup of tea." Joe Lynch, actor "We were walking down the corridor with Mr. Haughey who was on crutches at the time. He said to him `Paidi, did you break any bones during your career?' and he said, `Yes, Taoiseach, but none of my own.'" Sean Walsh, former Kerry GAA chairman on Paidi O Se "The worst thing about the game was there wasn't even a chance of a row." Colm O'Rourke "Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his shaggin' nose!" Radio Kilkenny commentator on Kilkenny v Wexford National League match "It's like gang warfare, innit?" Noel Gallagher, musician, on hurling
