All-Ireland Final Weekend!

So the GAA All-Ireland football final weekend is upon us, and I am doubly excited because the line-up (Dublin vs Kerry for those of you who have been living under a rock for the past month) is the same as the line-up exactly 40 years ago – the infamous final of 1975 when Dublin sent Mickey Ned O’Sullivan to hospital and Kerry sent Dublin packing, stealing back down the road to Munster with the Sam Maguire under their oxters.

This is the weekend in 1975 that serves as the setting for my novel The Lake, which has just been published in the USA.

So here’s to a great weekend of football – albeit with a different outcome to that in 1975.

Up the Dubs!!
