Paul McGrath is Ireland’s best loved sportsman and also the least understoodAn emblematic figure of football presence during a professional career spans over 14 years, he played for his country in the final of the 1988 European Championship and the World Cup finals of 1990 and 1994But, behind the implicit glamour of life that is employed by English clubs like Manchester United and Aston Villa, McGrath struggled with a range of destructive emotions that made his success in the almost miracle gameThis story has so far never been toldIt’s a story that runs from a hard, hidden childhood spent in Dublin orphanages all the way to the pain of two marriage break-ups and struggle to cope with life after footballQuite apart from its too public, struggle with alcoholism, history crosses the surrealists high and the calamitous lows of a life usually lived on the edge of chaosHe’s not just a football story.It is an extraordinary human adventure that is certain to surprise with its candorHere, for the first time, read about the father he never met; the mother whose love never died; the routine, loneliness and ritual of intimidation suffered by a black child, behind closed doors, in the 1960s in Dublin; the emotional breakdown leaving this institution; the recovery – remarkably – put in him all the way to Old Trafford; the roller coaster ride that followedHere guilt, fear, self-disgust, are all exposed in a story fed with hope and determination for the futureIt could well be the most candid sports book ever written
