From All-Ireland champions to Olympic gold medallists, Grand Slam greats to golfing Major champions, join us on a tour of Irish sporting history told as never before.

Which Irish soccer player has scored the most goals? Who is the most decorated Irish boxer of their generation? And who were the youngest Irish sports stars to achieve their dreams? Meet the people who put Ireland on the sporting map, brought together for the first time in charming and beautiful illustrations by Graham Corcoran.

For one small island, Ireland has produced a history of sporting achievement to rival even the biggest nations. The Big Book of Irish Sporting Heroes introduces readers young and old to the men and women who achieved spectacular feats across football, GAA, horse racing, gymnastics, rugby, the Olympic games and many many more.
