In The Blood


My life in, and out, of football

By Pat Spillane

Pat Spillane is one of the best-known sportspeople in Ireland. Selected for the GAA’s Team of the Millennium and winner of eight All-Ireland senior football medals, he is one of the greatest Gaelic footballers ever. He has also been one of the most controversial GAA pundits of all time, driving the agenda on The Sunday Game and in the Sunday World for thirty years.

In this honest and revealing book, Pat reveals the sadness of his childhood when his father died young; his dazzling football career and encounters with other immortals, from Mick O’Dwyer onwards; the reality of life as pundit; his years as a post primary school teacher; and the stress of dealing with the government after his spell with the state advisory group on rural affairs.
