As part of the celebration of Seachtain na Gaeilge, Castlebar Library is delighted to welcome author and sportsman Sean Kelly to the library to talk about his book 'Rule 42 and All That'.

Seán Kelly is a former President of the Gaelic Athletic Association (2003-2006) |He was born in Knockataggle, Kilcummin, Killarney, County Kerry in 1952, into a family that was deeply involved in the Gaelic Athletic Association. Before being elected president of the GAA he served as Chairman of the East Kerry (1975-1987) and County Kerry Boards (1987-1997) and Munster Council (1997-2000). As the first Kerryman to hold the position of President of the GAA his presidency is seen as a landmark one with the introduction of Christy Ring Cup and Nicky Rackard Cup, Tommy Murphy Cup, All-Ireland Junior and Intermediate Championships. He is credited with the successful conclusion of arrangements for the use of Croke Park, by the Irish Rugby Football Union and the Football Association of Ireland while Lansdowne Road is being re-developed. His book ‘Rule 42 and All That’ provides an insight into his life and into that momentous decision which impacts on so many sports people in so many different disciplines.
