Ronan O'Gara is quite simply one of the greatest sportsmen Ireland has ever produced. A brilliant kicker both from the hand and at penalty goals, a sublime orchestrator of play from the out-half position he has made his own, and a cool head in the pressure-cooker of club and international rugby, the list of the Cork man's achievements goes on and on. The leading points scorer in Irish rugby history, and one of the top 10 in the world. The leading points scorer in the history of the Heineken Cup. The first ever points and try scorer at the home of Gaelic sports, Croke Park. In his candid, illuminating autobiography, O'Gara tells the story of those many on-field successes, culminating in the glorious year of 2006, when his tactical prowess and will to win first helped guide Ireland to the Triple Crown in the Six Nations championship, then Munster to a memorable Heineken Cup victory over Biarritz at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. O'Gara kicked a perfect five out of five in the 23–19 win that glorious May day, as Munster lifted the coveted trophy for the first time, sparking wild celebrations heard all the way back in Limerick and Cork. Yet in any sporting career, there have been the setbacks as well, most notably Ireland's disappointing performance in the Rugby World Cup in France last year. O'Gara reveals what really went on in a divided dressing-room as a series of flat performances sent the Irish crashing out, while he personally had to deal with a series of front-page allegations about his private life. ROG has never been shy about the fact that he's fond of a drink and a bet, and he confronts his critics head on in this book. Ronan O'Gara: The Autobiography is the unforgettable story of a rugby player at the top of his game, of a life lived to the full, and of a passionate and proud representative of the people of Cork and Ireland.

About the Author:

Since making his international debut in 2000, Ronan O'Gara has gone on to win more than 80 caps and score more than 800 points for both Ireland in internationals and for Munster in the Heineken Cup—both record tallies. He was the leading points scorer in the Six Nations championship in 2005, 2006, and 2007, capturing the Triple Crown with Ireland in three of the last four years, and won the European Cup with Munster in 2006.

Review:

"Munster's recent story is compelling and O'Gara has been a central figure. With the assistance of Denis Walsh, this is a sweetly struck penalty of a book: revealing and hard-nosed" -- Robert Kitson * Guardian * "Perhaps the finest sports book of the year and among the best Irish sports biographies ever written... a deeply rewarding portrait of a great sportsman" -- Michael Foley * Sunday Times (Ireland) * "O'Gara is fascinating on both the mental and physical mechanics of the rugby kick... His candour means that he does not avoid discussing the darker aspects of his personal life" -- Leo McKinstry * Sunday Telegraph * "Candour is a defining characteristic of O'Gara's and pervades his autobiography... a compelling read" -- Hugh Farrelly * Irish Independent * "Basically it's the book O'Gara hoped it would be and that's the genius of it. Nothing is off limits, his world is laid bare and people are left to make up their own minds about the subject... He is brutally honest in his observations, is very hard and unforgiving on himself and tells it like it is. It is a hallmark of the man... It's all O'Gara" -- Conor George * Evening Echo *
