In Gaelic Football's Top 20, the greatest legends in Gaelic football history are exclusively profiled in what is a star-studded companion to the RTE radio series.Among the interviewees are Kerry legend Mick O'Connell and Galway's Sen Purcell, who vividly recount Gaelic football's golden age in the 1950s and '60s, while Sen O'Neill describes Down's historic breakthrough in 1960. The great Kerry teams of the '70s and '80s are also represented by stars including Pat Spillane, Mikey Sheehy, Jack O'Shea, John Egan and Eoin Liston, while Dublin's Jimmy Keaveney and Brian Mullins assess their most memorable battles with the Kerry giants. Elsewhere in the book, Larry Tompkins and Billy Morgan revisit Cork's matches with Meath in the late '80s and early '90s, Meath's Colm O'Rourke and Martin O'Connell offer their view of the contests and Offaly are represented by Matt Connor. Donegal's Martin McHugh and Derry's Anthony Tohill remember their breakthroughs, unlike Mayo's Willie Joe Padden and Sligo's Mickey Kearins, who instead describe the pain of their counties' near misses. On a different note, Enda Colleran recalls Galway's famous three-in-a-row in the '60s. Gaelic Football's Top 20 is crammed with anecdotes of the great contests and controversies that have dominated Gaelic football in the last half a century. Offering rare insights and behind-the-scenes analysis, it is essential reading for all fans of Ireland's most popular sport.
