'He is my most beloved friend and my bitterest rival, my confidant and my betrayer, my sustainer and my dependent, and scariest of all, my equal'

- Gregg Levoy 

The GAA's tradition is rooted in families. Since its foundation in 1884 many sets of brothers have battled with and against each other for the pride of parish and county. In a game rich with sibling talent and ability, Donal Keenan offers a fascinating examination of the game's rich family relations.

 

Profiling some of Ireland's most famous hurling and football brothers, Brothers in Sport provides an insight into lives and times of these famous sporting brothers who achieved success and fame through their sporting prowess in Gaelic football and hurling. With interviews of famous brothers like the Ó'hAilpins, the Earleys and the Canavans, as well as memories of past heroes like the Foleys and the Rackards, these profiles of brothers from across the country reflect their triumphs and disappointments throughout their careers.
