Cake: the utterly distinctive memoirs of Shane Curran. In an age when sportsmen have perfected the art of saying nothing and suppressing any trace of personality, Shane 'Cake' Curran is a beacon of light: passionate, outspoken, utterly himself. As a rare two-code goalkeeper - for Roscommon in Gaelic football and for Athlone Town in soccer - he made his own rules, soloing mesmerisingly out of goal, inventing a new style of kicking tee, and famously poaching a penalty kick a teammate had lined up in the 1989 Connacht minor final. Brave, honest and hilarious, Cake tells the story of an Irish sportsman who has lived the dream in his own utterly distinctive way.

Let them eat Cake. * RTE Guide * It's hilarious, honest and brave, but best of all it's a damned good book. * * A natural storyteller ... the stories are raw and largely uncut, including the time he produced a bag of his own blood in the dressing room as part of a pre-match speech * Sunday Times * One of the best GAA autobiographies of the last five years * Irish Examiner * Richly entertaining * Irish Times *
