Mary White takes the reader behind the scenes and showswhat made the Cork ladies footballers one of the most successful teams ever inthe history of Irish sport.
Thebook was shortlisted for the 2015 Setanta Ireland Sports Book of the Year. Thisedition contains a new afterword from the author, bringing the story up to the present day. 'It would have been disastrous ifthe best team in Irish sport had passed into history without their story beingtold.
Luckily for them and for us, Mary White was there taking notes right fromthe beginning and can give an outsider's view with an insider's knowledge. It'snot often that happens. A great insight into a truly great team.' - Malachy Clerkin, The Irish Times
