Everything to Play For by John McAuliffe


Everything to Play For Edited by John McAuliffe

Featuring a forward by Sonia O’Sullivan, Everything to Play For; 99 Poems about Sport edited by John McAuliffe, is a fantastic collection for poetry and sports lovers alike.

Sometimes sport takes over Irish life: we meet up at the match everyone is going to, or we stay in touch by talking about sport. And sport’s the stuff of family lore – the wrong turn at Ballybrit that led to Connemara instead of the Galway Races, the ex who came good with tickets, the All-Ireland winner throwing an American football on the beach. The poems collected in this anthology know sport, and they respond to the way that sport forms our alternative history, viewed from the stands, the sideline, and the centre circle.

Everything to Play for is available at Charlie Byrne’s for €15. For more information, or to reserve a copy, simply contact us.
