WATCH: Sean Curtin chats about a new book chronicling Limerick Schoolboy soccer from 1931-2000

His collaboration on CBS 200 added greatly to the history of the great school, and, just when you think that there is little else to be covered, Sean along with long time friends and soccer followers Buddy Brennan and Gerry McCormack have produced a definitive and exhaustive guide to the history of Limerick Schoolboy Soccer delving all the way back to 1931.

Quite simply if you have any interest in this book, and few in Limerick won’t have, as it runs to nearly a thousand pages and features 1400 pictures with thousands of faces and names, you should not delay in getting yourself a copy.

It is a quality publication in a hard cover and at just €30 it is about the best value that you will find anywhere in the literary or publishing world.What makes it all the more attractive is that there is a strictly limited print run of just 1,000 copies and this will be a book that will be sought time and again over the weeks, months and years to come.

The launch of the book will take place on Friday night next in Janesboro’s clubhouse and will be presided over by Leonard Burke, a name and a voice that will be well known to Limerick people everywhere as part of the legendary sports team that transitioned from the great pirate days of Raidio Luimni to the airwaves of Limerick’s Live 95fm.

A full house is expected in “The Boro” and any books still left will be available from Sean directly or from Limerick Sports Store on William Street.

We caught up with Sean at the Markets Field this week to talk about the book and the huge amount of work that went into putting it together between himself and his co authors, Buddy Brennan and Gerry McCormack.
