As a young footballer, Clare Shine seemed to have it all. By 19, she was a full-time professional and a senior international, but was also addicted to alcohol, had experimented with drugs and attempted suicide. This is the story of a girl struggling to find her identity, a journey in search of confidence and self-belief and a remarkable recovery.
Irish rugby has produced many charismatic figures over its history. None more than Willie Anderson. Crossing The Line is the story of a life challenged by sectarianism, alcohol addiction, and personal tragedy. It is the story of a triumph over adversity.
A Dubray Books Favourite Book of all Time. An endlessly re-readable autobiography that offers a candid and fascinating insight into the complex and problematic life of a sporting great. (Jack Byrne, Kilkenny)
