TV3 Virgin Media One’s political correspondent Gavan Reilly‘s book on the nine-day downfall of former Taoiseach and Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny, published by Mercier Press.
Dublin writer Lee Daly has set up a crowdfund page to help him publish his book Before A Fall: A History of PRIDE FC.
I’ve been a huge PRIDE fan since I got the 2000 Grand Prix on a VHS tape nearly two decades ago and was always captivated by the glamour, grit and grievances that made the promotion so compelling.
For years I wondered why there was no book on the history of PRIDE, before deciding to take the plunge and tackle it as a project.
I’ve been researching and writing for two years and have been very fortunate to have had help from fighters, commentators and journalists, all who have shared unique insights into what made PRIDE so special. Here’s just some of the names featured: Bas Rutten, Stephen Quadros, Frank Shamrock, Minoru Suzuki, Erik Paulson and Frank Trigg
Illustrator John Sheehan and I have been working hard to make the book a reality and we now want to share the results of our work with as many of our fellow fans as we can.
