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.

Many unsuspecting residents woke that morning to find water already inside their homes.

Ireland, World War One. Dashing Harry Heegan leads his football team to victory, arriving home in swaggering celebration before he grabs his kit and heads for the trenches. A nightmare world awaits, the men, reduced to cannon fodder, speaking in mangled incantations as the casualties stack up. Months later, Harry returns, a cripple at the football club party. Everyone but the shattered war veterans dance and forget. Peppered with acrid wit and dark vaudeville humour, The Silver Tassie, Sean O'Casey's powerful anti-war play of 1928, receives a major revival at the National Theatre in April 2014.
