About That Goal – The official autobiography of Seamus Darby

In ‘About That Goal’, Seamus Darby talks about the sense of destiny he felt in the run-up to scoring arguably the most famous goal in the history of Gaelic football.

The former Offaly star also puts the record straight on his drinking and other rumours that have followed him around almost since the day he scored that dramatic All-Ireland winning goal against Kerry in 1982.

In a no-punches pulled narrative, the 68-year-old old also recalls

  • The day a gangster came looking to shoot him in his pub in London
  • How he fought and won against a different type of opponent – cancer
  • His gratitude after surviving a serious car crash this summer (2019)
