I am very honoured that The First Sunday in September is the Croke Park GAA Museum’s Book Club Choice for October 2021.
Each month the GAA Museum team choses a well-known GAA book to read and review and at the end of the month, the museum hosts a free online interview with the author, in which members can submit questions and comments.
Personally it’s a lovely feeling that visitors to Croke Park have the opportunity to buy the book there, in the stadium around which the novel hinges.
Three years after it’s publication it also brings new readers to the book, from all over Ireland and abroad, which is great. It’s also brilliant to be following in the footsteps of such amazing writers as Mary White, Christy O’Connor, Dave Hannigan, Michael Foley and Paul Rouse. And I’m sure that great books will feature in the GAA Museum Book Club in the future and it’s lovely to be part of such a fantastic initiative.
