Om boka

Before Jason Sherlock was an icon of Hill 16, he was a prodigy in basketball, soccer and even hurling. Follow Jason's journey from an estate in Finglas to the top of the Irish sporting world and how he became an Dublin GAA icon as the Boys in Blue won the All-Ireland football final in 1995. It wasn't always easy, as Jason had to cope with racist abuse from an early age. After his inspiring playing career, Jason would go on to become a trusted assistant for Jim Gavin during Dublin's five-in-a-row run. Discover how a boy from the Dublin northside found strength in his difference to become a gaelic football great.

Evening Echo

«<p>Shay Given and Jason Sherlock’s sporting lives are examined in two well-researched and accessible new books by Natasha Mac a’Bhaird and Donny Mahoney</p>»

Irish Independent

«<p>I would recommend this book to people who are singled out because of their heritage because this book could help them to overcome the narrow-minded opinions of others and encourage them to follow their dreams, like Jason did. I would also recommend it to people who have a love for sport, just as much as Jason did. I give this book 10/10. It kept me interested, engaged and rooting for Jason Sherlock. <em>Aidan, 4th Class, Ballygarvan NS, Co. Cork</em></p> <p> </p>»
