Moving, thrilling and frequently hilarious, The White Heat is an exploration of what it means to eat, sleep and bleed Gaelic Games.

Shortlisted for the Bord Gáis Energy Irish Book Awards 2015

When Tomas O Se retired from the Kerry senior panel in 2013, he did so as one of the longest-serving players in inter-country history and one of its most prolific winners.

But his drive and determination wasn't forged in a vacuum: it came from growing up in a family and place where Gaelic football was all that mattered. For Tomas and his brothers, Marc and Darragh, football always came first - each of them inspired by the larger-than-life personality of their uncle, Paidi, the talisman of Kerry's fabled team of the early 1980s.

In this memoir, an account of his upbringing and time in the Championship cauldron, competing alongside and against the sport's modern greats, Tomas writes candidly about life as a member of Ireland's greatest sporting dynasty: the victories and disappointments, the rivals and roguery, the clashes and confrontations ...not to mention the tremendous responsibility that came with donning the green and gold of Kerry.
