Irish Book Awards

Rob Kearney with David Walsh

Rob Kearney is the most decorated Irish rugby player in history, winning two Six Nations Grand Slams and four European titles during a 15-year career at the very top of the sport, which included two tours with the British and Irish Lions. One of the most respected and revered names in the professional era, Kearney took the art of full-back play to new heights in the No.15 jersey and his longevity, durability and dedication mark him out as a special man – on and off the pitch.

 

Kearney collaborated with David Walsh, the Sunday Times chief sports writer. Walsh is a four-time Irish Sportswriter of the Year and three-time UK Sportswriter of the Year winner. In 2013, his book Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit Of Lance Armstrong won the Irish Sports Book of the Year Award.
