Updated paperback edition of the best selling book which covers the history of Croke Park.

When the GAA purchased what became known as Croke Park in 1913, they cannot have imagined it would become a sports icon in Ireland's national consciousness, would be the third largest stadium in Europe, and would host over 80,000 people at international rugby and soccer matches. Thousands have played there, millions have watched.

This world-class stadium symbolises modern Ireland and the GAA's strength. Here is the story of 'Croker' from the beginning, featuring great games, personalities, dramas and non-GAA events. Reminiscences by renowned players, officials and others add colour to the history. The magnificence of the stadium and its history is reflected in the fine collection of photographs and illustrations.

This updated edition includes new material on the reconstructed historic Hill 16, the new surface and floodlighting, and the playing of rugby and soccer internationals on the hallowed ground.
