In From the Press Box, Peter Byrne gives the reader a ringside seat to the key sporting clashes of the past seventy years, beginning with the Republic of Ireland's historic match against England at Dalymount Park in 1948 (which was followed by a state reception for the England team, hosted by Taoiseach Eamon de Valera) and ending with the crowning of Kilkenny as All-Ireland hurling champions in 2012. Byrne writes superbly on all of Ireland's sporting heroes of recent times, including greats such as Ronnie Delaney, Roy Keane and Brian O'Driscoll. All the major sports are covered, from Gaelic football, hurling and soccer to athletics, rugby and cricket. Relive the high points of Ireland's sporting history in the presence of one of this country's master sportswriters, a forty-year veteran of the Irish Times who was also a regular contributor to the Daily Telegraph and the News of the World. From the Press Box features a foreword by legendary distance runner Sonia O'Sullivan.
