Based on the popular Facebook page, which regularly reaches over 500,000 people, The Rory’s Stories Guide to the GAA sends up a certain kind of lad obsessed with the GAA calendar, his local club and county team above everything else.
This hilarious guide to the GAA covers it all: bleep tests; post-game hangovers; forty-way WhatsApp conversations; that lad always doing his hamstring; fair-weather Dub supporters; old men who’ve umpired every parish game since the Civil War; Marty Morrissey’s forehead; ham sandwiches; dirty corner-backs; more hangovers; impenetrable Kerry accents; weight training followed by ten pints; pretending to understand tactics; lobbing it up to the big lad; prima donna corner forwards...
Infinitely recognisable and laugh-out-loud funny, it’s the perfect gift for GAA fans.
