Price: €20.00

The GAA's founders in 1884 cannot have imagined Croke Park, a sports icon in Ireland’s national consciousness, would host over 80,000 people at an international rugby match. The Gaelic football match in March 2007 between Dublin and Tyrone was the largest sporting event in the world that weekend. Thousands have played there, millions have watched. This world-class stadium symbolises modern Ireland and the GAA’s strength. Here is the story of 'Croker' from the beginning, featuring great games, personalities, dramas and non-GAA events. Reminiscences by renowned players, officials and others add colour to the history. The magnificence of the stadium and its history is reflected in the best ever collection of photographs and illustrations about this hallowed ground. This updated edition includes new material on the reconstructed historic Hill 16, the new surface and floodlighting, and the playing of rugby and soccer internationals on the hallowed ground.
