“The overall winning author will receive a €1,500 cash prize, a specially commissioned trophy and €10,000 worth of TV advertising on eir sport.

This is the fourth year of the eir sport Sports Book of The Year. Last year, eir sport and Publishing Ireland announced Philly McMahon’s ‘The Choice’ as the winner.
