From Borroloola to Mangerton Mountain

Travels and Stories from Ireland's Most Beloved Broadcaster


Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh is best known as the voice of the GAA. But his interests and enthusiasms – sporting and non-sporting – go far beyond the fields of Gaelic games. In his new book, the follow-up to his bestselling memoir From Dún Síon to Croke Park, Micheál brings us along on his travels around the world, and to the villages, townlands and sporting fields of the four provinces of Ireland. He recalls great days at the races and in sporting stadiums big and small, and great nights in the dance halls. Above all, he tells the stories of these places and the people he has encountered there – stories told as only Micheál can tell them.
