A Brand New Book. Andy Moran is one of the most respected and admired sportsmen to ever grace a Gaelic football arena. The former double All-Star, Footballer of the Year and Mayo team captain has written a compelling appraisal of the sport he loves.This first publication by the Mayo author follows his retirement in 2019. It is a book about Mayo football – the agony, the ecstasy, the bitter near misses, the players, the friendships, the highs and the lows. But it has a much broader canvas. Andy – Lessons Learned in Pursuit of Glory does what it says. It tells us how sport can influence every aspect of a player’s life; of how football moulded the writer himself; of the life lessons that sport teaches all of us; and of how a coach or mentor can be a life-changing influence on a young adult. As the author says, this is a story about relationships and lessons learned, told through the people who inspired him and who, in turn, epitomise what is so special about Mayo football.
