Posted by


AUTHOR and journalist David Byrne will be signing copies of his book ‘Kerry Game of My Life’ at O’Mahony’s booksellers, in town this Saturday, December 18th from 12noon.

“I am looking forward to getting to meet the people of Tralee and further afield and I am more than delighted to sign copies during what will be a very busy weekend for Christmas shopping – the storm before the calm,” said Mr Byrne, a journalist with Kerry’s Eye.

“Kerry Game of My Life is not only a look back on games gone by, but an exciting journey through the past, what makes these 30 men tick, and what got them to that stage of their footballing career. I am really excited to share these stories from both on and off the field.”

The new book leads the reader through 30 Kerry and club games from the point of view of former Kerry stars including Mick O’Dwyer, Dr Sean Murphy, Mikey Sheehy, Eoin ‘Bomber’ Liston, Jack O’Shea, the  Ó Sé  brothers, Seamus Moynihan, Dara Ó Cinnéide, Darran O’Sullivan, Kieran Donaghy, and many more.

The book also tells of the many ups and downs of the 30 stars, both on and off the field.

From the 1959 All-Ireland final between Kerry and Galway to the All-Ireland Club semi-final between Dr Crokes and Corofin in 2017, thirty of the greatest Kerry footballers over the last 60 years tell of the games in green and gold, and games in their own club colours, that defined their lives.

Including first-person testimonials from many of the stars of the 1975/85 era when Mick O’Dwyer’s brilliant team dominated the game and changed Gaelic football forever – and also teams from The Kingdom that won All-Irelands in the 90s, noughties and in 2014.
