Ireland's Call. Irish Sporting Heroes Who Fell In The Great War by Stephen Walker Merrion Press 2015.
During the Great War hundreds of Irish rugby players joined the British Army and lost their lives in the mud of France and Flanders and in the heat of Gallipoli. A generation of sporting heroes died and their number also included soccer players, GAA stars, hockey internationals, cricketers and athletes. For the first time a new book tells the story of how 40 leading Irish sportsmen swapped the playing field for the battle field.
Stephen Walker is a journalist & political correspondent for BBC Northern Ireland.
