Imagine preparing for the biggest game of your life. Imagine the blood, sweat and years that go into such. Imagine the dressing room beforehand. Imagine playing with the best against the best. Imagine the roar of the crowd. Imagine winning. It must be the greatest feeling in the world. But what about when it’s over and you step off the stage? Imagine that. You’re no longer a player. You’re now a former player.
‘At The End Of The Day’ is about retiring from the national or international stage in sport. It’s the story of 14 of Ireland’s greatest ever sportspeople who’ve retired in recent years.
Author, Oranmore man and ‘Sunday Game’ producer Paul Byrnes’ book, tells their stories and how they’ve coped with life after sport.
