The Boy Who Wanted to Fly (Paperback)

Don Mullan


Don Mullan was a young dyslexic boy growing up in a Northern Ireland being violently torn apart by The Troubles. Having witnessed Bloody Sunday he was tempted to join the IRA, as many of his contemporaries did. But the boy had a hero. And he was English. This is the story of how Don was mesmerised at an early age by the great England 1966 World Cup winning goalkeeper, Gordon Banks. In 1970 he met Banks in Ireland and the encounter was to have a profound impact on Don and a primary reason why he rejected violence. A powerful, moving and unforgettable story, The Boy Who Wanted to Fly is for everyone who's ever had a hero. Includes: an interview with Gordon Banks and details of the battle to create a monument to the great goalkeeper. Don Mullan is the author of best-selling Eyewitness Bloody Sunday and a respected humanitarian. He is currently involved in numerous international projects.
