GAA Museum Book Club Live Online: Interview with Historian and Author George Cartwright
September 30 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
Presented by The GAA Museum.
The GAA Museum Book Club choice for August/September is The Gallant John Joe by George Cartwright.
This is the first time our book choice has focused on an individual player and who better to start with than ‘Cavan’s Millennium Man’ John Joe O’Reilly?
In this well-researched biography, which was a labour of love for author George Cartwright, Cavan’s most famous player is celebrated through stories of his achievements both on and off the pitch. The book also examines the legacy left behind following O’Reilly’s untimely death at the age of 34. Author George Cartwright is a native of Cornafean, the club where John Joe O’Reilly’s career started. Through this book he tells the story of O’Reilly both as a great man and as a great footballer.
George has served the GAA at club, county and national level and is a retired school principal with a lifelong interest in local, family and GAA history.
Our live and free online chat with George will take place at 8.30pm on Thursday September 30th.
