Ger keeps busy during the lockdown
One of the greatest club members of all time, Ger Gavin, is going to keep himself busy during the lockdown with outstanding books written by two superb local writers Damien Lawlor (Kilruane MacDonaghs) and Shane Brophy (Lorrha & Dorrha). Damien’s book, When the World Stops Watching, focuses on the experiences of sportspeople after they finish their sporting careers while Shane’s book, Chiselled from Ash, is the autobiography of hurling legend Len Gaynor. Another great sportsbook recently published is Game of my Life by Tipp FM commentator Stephen Gleeson. Here Stephen chats to 35 Tipperary players, from Theo English to Michael Cleary, about the greatest game they played in.
