Denis Coughlan

Everything one of the sports books of the year 

Everything, the Autobiography of Denis Coughlan was chosen as one of the Irish sports books of the year in three newspapers. The Irish Times: Malachy Clerkin said that the book was ‘gorgeous, lyrical and redolent of a different time in some places but also strident and insightful about modern GAA tensions in others’. Click on the link here The Sunday Times said: ‘The equivalent of a fireside chat, warm and genial and full of Leeside lore.’ Click here to see the link. The Irish Examiner picked it as one of the 10 sports books to read for Christmas, Enda McEvoy saying: ‘A warm, chatty and immensely enjoyable book, with the presence as ghostwriter of the novelist Tadhg Coakley adding a sheen of class.’ Click here to see the link.
