Banter – Where is the Great GAA Novel?

Monday 17th April 2017
11:00 - 12:00 Dublin Castle

Just where is the great GAA novel? We’ve had reams of factual books on the sports, but, apart from the odd reference to togging out for a match, heading to a training session or using the parish pitch as backdrop, Gaelic games rarely turn up in fiction. It’s a rum one, especially given the place that the games have in our national culture. Our senior hurling panel scratch their heads to consider why this is so – and dream up just what the great GAA novel might look like.

Speakers in this Cruinniú na Cásca Banter special are Michael Moynihan (sportswriter, The Irish Examiner), Rachael English (novelist and presenter of RTÉ Radio One’s Morning Ireland), Eimear Ryan (writer and co-editor of Banshee literary journal) and Kieran Cunningham (chief sportswriter, Irish Daily Star).

Banter is presented by Jim Carroll.
