Day 211 Christy O’Connor (Photo A Day 2012)


This is Christy O’Connor hurler, author and journalist who plays for St Joseph’s Doora Barefield in county Clare. I met him when we visited the club on the Clare leg of the 32-32-32 penalty kick challenge. Christy’s book “The Club” is rightly considered a classic about a year in the life of St Joseph’s.Tom Humphries of the Irish Times said “to understand Ireland, you have to understand the GAA. To understand the GAA, you have to read this book. A masterpiece”
