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 looked at the scoreboard at one time and thought it was the time: 4-17." Darragh O Se "Sean Og O'Halpin - his father's from Fermanagh, his mother from Fiji, neither a hurling stronghold." Micheal O Muircheartaigh "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 "It's like gang warfare, innit?" Noel Gallagher, musician, on hurling
