‘An extraordinary piece of work’.... Rovers Official History

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.
