Donal's candour in chronicling that night [of Cormac's death] and the days and weeks that followed would bring a tear to a stone * Irish News * Never has a sports book been more aptly titled. Seldom has there been the same level of care over every single word * Belfast Telegraph * Heart-rending ...
