In the picture with ‘A Season of Sundays’

THE 14th edition of Sportsfile’s ‘A Season of Sundays’ will be launched in Dublin tonight.

It is an album of memories and impressions from the 2010 GAA season through the cameras of the acclaimed agency.

The book illustrates all the GAA moments and talking points of the season from Tipperary’s and Cork’s All-Ireland titles, the form of Bernard Brogan and ‘that goal’ from Joe Sheridan in the Leinster SFC final.

Sportsfile’s Ray McManus has no doubts about one of the biggest talking points of the season past — which is captured in the book.

“For all the hundreds of times that Meath’s extra-time goal against Louth has been recycled in slow motion nothing better defines the moment than one still picture. Joe Sheridan on the line; Louth defenders in a diagonal line of despair; Meath men arriving like the cavalry; one impassive umpire.”

The book, sponsored by Ulster Bank, retails at €29.95 is available now at bookstores nationwide and online at
