You know me and old results – in my spare time, I’m still working my way through the archive appended to James Laffey’s book and have now uploaded onto the site here everything as far back as 1936 – so when I was told the other day that four separate GAA results books had just been published, it was easy to get my attention.
The four titles have been published (all of a shot, like) by L O’Dare (not his real name) as ebooks on Amazon Kindle and they contain details of football and hurling championship results for every county from 1887 to 2011, with team details for all counties for the last fifty years. The titles are GAA Senior Hurling Championship Results, GAA Senior Hurling Championship Players, GAA Senior Football Championship Results and GAA Senior Football Championship Players. They each cost $3.68 and because they’re ebooks there are, of course, no additional delivery charges.
All proceeds from this initiative will go to two charities, with the Alan Kerins Projects benefitting from the royalties from the two hurling books while Playing For Life will receive the royalties from the two football ones. Good causes, the both of them.
On an entirely separate note, Gombeen has been on to ask for a plug in relation his Antrim GAA blog, hittingthebar, which I’m happy to provide. GAA blogs are still very rare birds – there’s a Derry one as well called Oakleafers which you might also want to have a look at – so it’s always good to see new ones materialising.
