Brian Carthy reflects on GAA year gone by

‘The Championship 2016’ book by Brian Carthy

RTÉ Radio Gaelic Games Correspondent/Commentator, Brian Carthy reflects on the 2016 Hurling and Football Championships in his comprehensive, all-colour book, the 22nd in the series, which provides the definitive record of every single match of the summer season.

It is widely referred to as the bible of the Championships in that it provides the unrivalled record of both the senior football and hurling Championships.

A native of Ballymore, a townland near Strokestown, County Roscommon, Brian has written some 24 books, including ‘Football Captains, All-Ireland Winners’ and ‘The A-Z of Country & Irish Stars’.

Brian has been compiling the annual record of the Championships since 1995.
