The Irish Independent’s soccer correspondent Daniel McDonnell described
Rovers official history ‘The Bit O’ Red as an ‘extraordinary piece of
work. It’s a tome that will not age.
"For every Sligo Rovers fan, it is
an essential purchase, yet there’s stuff in there for anyone with an
appreciation of Irish football history.’
There were similarly positive reviews across all sections of the local
and national media, and Sligo Rovers Heritage Group Chairman Aidan
Mannion expects there will be renewed interest in the book as we
approach the start of a new season.
‘The reaction has been simply
phenomenal. The advance subscriptions created a great sense of
anticipation for the book, and it proved to be a very popular Christmas
present for Rovers supporters. It is already acknowledged to be the
most detailed history produced by any League of Ireland Club, and it
will be a definitive reference book for this and future generations.’
The Bit O’ Red is available at the Record Room, Sligo,
Cost €75 hardback, €50 regular edition.
