In this captivating debut, Belfast native Stephen Rea crafts a story of sportsmanship and strength built around an unusual pub soccer team in the heart of New Orleans. Set against the dark backdrop of Hurricane Katrina, this luminous and infinitely inviting memoir traces the affecting stories of Rea and his hilarious and dynamic friends and teammates. Comprised primarily of ex-pats over the age of 35, Finn McCool's Football Club boasts a dynamic mix of idiosyncratic personalities. From Macca, the team's Scottish coach and a hard-drinking ex-professional player, to its outspoken South African landscape gardener/striker Benji, each character comes vibrantly to life in Rea's fresh and frank prose. Hilarious moments and poignant reflections shine with equal intensity throughout this multifarious work, which captures the individual experiences of the Finn's players in the wake of Katrina. A literary memoir, soccer story, and tale of survival and resolve, this work is an indefatigable tribute to a city and its residents who determined to play on after their lives were all but washed away.

Before 2012, the idea of Rangers ever playing in the SFL Third Division would have been a joke. But it's a funny old game, and after a tumultuous few months, gone were visits to Celtic Park, Pittodrie, Tynecastle and Easter Road and in came a whole new world with trips to Annan, Elgin, Berwick and Peterhead. But with some of the most loyal fans in the world, it was always going to be an incredible journey. Packed with interviews from players like club captain Lee McCulloch, Andy Little, David Templeton and manager Ally McCoist himself, Rangers FC: We Don't Do Walking Away captures the humour, the emotion and, of course, the football as the club set out on a unique season. Author Lisa Gray went to every game, home and away, following the club and their supporters through a challenging but rewarding year, from being granted a licence to play just forty-eight hours before the start of the season to finally lifting the Championship trophy. This is the inside story of both the team and the supporters as they adjusted to a season in the Third Division with new players, new opposition and, of course, new pies. And what a rollercoaster year it has been.

On February 1, 2003, the unthinkable happened. The space shuttle Columbia disintegrated 37 miles above Texas, seven brave astronauts were killed and America's space program, always an eyeblink from disaster, suffered its second catastrophic in-flight failure. Unlike the Challenger disaster 17 years earlier, Columbia's destruction left the nation one failure away from the potential abandonment of human space exploration. Media coverage in the immediate aftermath focused on the possible cause of the disaster, and on the nation's grief. But the full human story, and the shocking details of NASA's crucial mistakes, have never been told -- until now. Based on dozens of exclusive interviews, never-before-published documents and recordings of key meetings obtained by the authors, Comm Check takes the reader inside the conference rooms and offices where NASA's best and brightest managed the nation's multi-billion-dollar shuttle program -- and where they failed to recognize the signs of an impending disaster. It is the story of a space program pushed to the brink of failure by relentless political pressure, shrinking budgets and flawed decision making. The independent investigation into the disaster uncovered why Columbia broke apart in the sky above Texas. Comm Check brings that story to life with the human drama behind the tragedy. Michael Cabbage and William Harwood, two of America's most respected space journalists, are veterans of all but a handful of NASA's 113 shuttle missions. Tapping a network of sources and bringing a combined three decades of experience to bear, the authors provide a rare glimpse into NASA's inner circles, chronicling the agency's most devastating failure and the challenges that face NASA as it struggles to return America to space.

In this well-researched volume, historian Dr. Laura D. Kelley tells the colorful, entertaining, and often adventurous history of the Irish in New Orleans.

The book also includes essays by Betsy McGovern recalling her involvement in the city's Irish music scene and Terrence Fitzmorris who discusses wakes and funerary practices of the Irish. The lively and readable text is beautifully illustrated with photographs by Carrie Lee Schwartz that convey the continuing vibrancy of the Irish community of the Crescent City.
