9780747570790: Red Mist: Roy Keane and the Irish World Cup Blues: A Fan's Story

2002 was the year of Roy Keane, if not exactly Roy Keane's year. Banished from Ireland's World Cup squad and then suspended by the English FA after comments in his best-selling autobiography, the Manchester United and Ireland captain was seldom out of the news. Red Mist is Conor O'Callaghan's memoir of the year when an Irish hero was arraigned in the court of public opinion—argued about in bars and across shop counters, debated by the media, and surrounded by a torrent of rumours. From the drawings of O'Callaghan's football-mad seven-year-old son and the mysterious disappearance of his rag doll Mr, Roy Keane that summer, to eavesdropped conversations and tirades on websites, this is a passionate exploration of celebrity, temperament, one-all victories, Saipan, the World Cup, and national aspiration.

About the Author:

Conor O'Callaghan is the author of three acclaimed poetry collections, The History of Rain (shortlisted for the Forward Poetry Prize Best First Collection and winner of the Patrick Kavanagh Award), Seatown and Fiction. He lives in Co. Louth, Republic of Ireland, with his wife and fellow poet Vona Groarke and their two children, Tommy and Eve.

Review:

'Explores the relationship between the Irish people and their reluctant hero ... hilarious ... Witty, charming, compulsive' Four Four Two 'An engaging piece of work, lit by flashes of sharp humour and wonderful idiosyncrasies ... O'Callaghan has a deep, sure-footed and self-deprecating humour. Red Mist is a quiet joy to read and frequently a laugh-out-loud book' Dermot Bolger, Sunday Business Post 'An engaging memoir of Irish society during the 2002 World Cup ... witty and well told' Independent 'Cleverly observed and beautifully written ... O'Callaghan manages to outfeverpitch Fever Pitch with his memoir, his love of the game and his empathy, with a brilliant but flawed man, dripping from the pages' Sunday Tribune
