Sports-mad Eoin Madden is home in Tipperary for the holidays. There’s no rugby over the summer, so he and his Castlerock boarding school friends, Dylan and Alan, head down to Ormondstown GAA club and get involved with the hurling and football teams. The summer is full of fun as the boys all get into playing GAA – well, apart from Alan, who’s more into studying the opposition, and checking out the GAA stats. Eoin and Dylan take part in a hurling and football blitz against other clubs in the county and find some of the skills they’ve developed in rugby translate well to their native sports. The lads also have a bit of fun setting up a gardening business with their new teammates Vladis and Isaac to make some money. Everything is going well, so Eoin isn’t sure why he bumps into his old ghostly friend, Brian Hanrahan – along with the ghost of Michael Hogan, who died in Croke Park on Bloody Sunday. Usually when ghosts appear to Eoin it is because there’s something brewing. Some mystery or danger! The only thing going wrong in Ormondstown seems to be a bit of trouble with a gang of bullies. But Eoin and Dylan have handled the bullies – or have they? The ghostly action really hots up when the friends go to Dublin for the All-Ireland Hurling final. Eoin gains a deeper understanding of the tragedy of Bloody Sunday 100 years ago. But will he be in time to stop a modern tragedy unfolding? Book 7 in the acclaimed Rugby Spirit series.

In the western section of Carleton County lies a region of hospitality once known as West or Upper Huntley Township. An Irish community has lived among its ridges and valleys for the past 170 years. 'Once Upon a Country Lane' is the story of the land and of its people. The author's fifty-five year friendship with this Celtic settlement began as a child. During summer, Christmas, and Easter vacations, from 1937 to 1946, he lived with his grandmother at O'Keefe's Corners, West Huntley. In this book the author reflects on those carefree days. Supporting personal memories with extensive research gathered here and in Ireland, the author presents an intimate picture of the Irish of West Huntley.

"Block's fastidious research, together with her sympathetic mastery of the issues involved in writing a life, have yielded a lively portrait of this important musician and intriguing personality. The book is especially rich in its exploration of Beach's origins in family, community, and region, and in its ability to put her life experience into the context of America's changing cultural life."--Ruth A.

Sport and Nationalism in Ireland

This book examines the development of a nationalist agenda within Irish sport and searches for a definition of nationalism in this context. The question of what Irish nationalism is, and what forces shape it, has stretched the minds of generations of Irish historians and political scientists. For some the answer has been found within the realms of political history, while others have examined how the cultural impact of Irish literature and drama has shaped nationalism. These genres relied on elites, be they political or literary, within Irish society to understand the evolution of nationalist thinking and the operation of nationalism as an ideal. Sport offers a new way of looking at nationalism as it offers mass-consumed low culture as a vehicle. Since the foundation of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) in 1884 through to the current popularity of soccer, sporting events have been played by tens of thousand and watched by hundreds of thousands of Irish people both at home and as part of the diaspora. This means that sport has a greater resonance and meaning for the experience of the multitude of the Irish in stark contrast to the operation of Dublin-centred politics and literature. This book defines sporting nationalism through the experience of Gaelic games and soccer as examples of mass spectator sport. The choice of a mass spectator sport which a nation chooses to support will demonstrate the perceived place of that nation within the world and the trends prevalent within its society, thereby intrinsically defining the state of its nationalism.
