King's for a Day - new book on Armagh's 2002 All-Ireland success

Taking advantage of the day, and with a bit of cheek (admins, feel free to delete), I thought I'd break my hiatus from the forum to blatant advertise a book that's coming out now in just over a week.

It's Kings for a Day and while its centrepiece is undoubtedly that day 20 years ago today - really it's probably the period from 1997 to 2007.

Anyway, it's due out on Oct 3 - Monday week - and can be pre-ordered here at O'Brien. Will of course be in book shops too.

Hopefully of it's interest and feel free to share with any not just Armagh fans, but GAA fans that may be of interest!

Hope you enjoy and it provides an honest account, warts and all, of what was a magical time following Armagh.

Again, admins - delete away if you feel inappropriate.

Thanks,
Niall

Best of luck with it Niall, was a golden age for the county (not bad for club either ;)). Looking forward to it and might get one for herself as a present:p

@PatMustard I’ll swap you a half dozen churns of pasteurised milk for those bales….

Cheers folks!

@bcb1 big time Gav, and there's a fair bit dedicated to the Mullaghbawn and Cross stories and their influence on the breakthrough too. Careful tough, for every book you get her good self she could fire four in return now.

Surely no-one could object to this specific piece of self-promotion - it's what we all enjoyed - best times ever. Looking forward to reading the book.

No issues at all Niall. Few have done as much to promote gaelic games and culture and indeed especially within and surrounding our own county. Many have now joined in thankfully and are doing sterling work, but it's hard to beat the originals.

Congratulations on getting this done, prepared and launched and hopefully it sells really well for you. In 2072 I'll pick a copy up in the £500 bargain basket and it'll sit proudly alongside the editions you bring out to commemorate the three in a row team coming to a ground near you in the not too distant future and then of course to mark the winners of a further six AI titles in the following fourteen years.

I don't have to be serious and straight all the time you know. I can be down with the "IN" crowd too!!!!!

Good luck with the launch - on a serious note, it will sit well with my Brian Carthy books and others about some of our greatest tv and radio commentators. A1
