Cora Staunton is an iconic figure in the world of modern GAA. In this ground-breaking autobiography, Cora reveals her extraordinary journey from teenage rookie to the highest scoring forward in the history of the game. Since making her senior inter-county debut for Mayo at just 13 years of age, Cora has become a feared and respected opponent on any pitch and in 2017 she became the first international draft signing in the Australian Women's Football League.
Now for the first time she recounts the triumphs of her career and the personal struggles that have plagued it. In this refreshingly candid book, Cora recalls finding refuge in the game after the death of her mother, but also speaks openly about the challenges and conflicts she and her teammates have had to endure as the much under-resourced counterpoint to their male colleagues. Cora has been on the inside of some of GAA's most controversial incidents of recent years and she will now reveal all.
In the first ever autobiography of a female GAA star, Cora's story will take its place as one of the most influential and powerful sports books in recent years.
