Con Houlihan was, quite simply, one of Ireland's finest sports writers. Over a lengthy career, Con covered many of the greatest Irish and international sporting events, from classic Gaelic football and hurling finals to the soccer and rugby World Cups, the Olympics and memorable race meetings at home and abroad. He also covered sport's biggest stars, from George Best to Muhammad Ali. More Than A Game gathers together the finest examples of his sports journalism from the mid-1970s to the early 2000s. Let Con be your guide to some of the greatest moments - and characters - in Irish and world sport.

The Church of the Red Arrow is a book about everything at once. It is perfect for people with ADD or people who just get bored easily. You can flip around in it all day like the yellow pages and always wind up home. In this respect it is like the old saying that all roads lead to Mecca. It is poetry, fiction, and nonfiction with a section listing hundreds of unanswerable questions that are thought provoking and good topics of conversation. There are also several short stories which start out linear and end up Joycian. The book covers politics, poetry, and all sorts of paradoxes. It is philosophical and sometimes just plain dumb. I think you will find it an honest read: sometimes whimsical, sometimes seriously difficult, sometimes fusing an antithesis or two often just by accident--hence the conclusion that Lady Luck has smiled on this book. Your author has written three other volumes which could or could not hook up quite nicely with this one if everything in the world were a train. Mr. Houlihan is also a member of the Lefty Jones Band (but it is not his fault). He refuses to play out or be seen in public.

Spanning a broad trajectory, from the New Gaelic Man of post-independence Ireland to the slick urban gangsters of contemporary productions, this study traces a significant shift from idealistic images of Irish manhood to a much more diverse and gender-politically ambiguous range of male identities on the Irish screen.
