Era i thought ye meant the father abandoned them when they were kids, Would Hailpin be the man he is today without his dad's help, I doubt it.

I certainly found that sad reading. A home should be a refuge of peace for kids, sport should be enjoyed even if perfection is not achieved.

I found Donal Og's book well the extracts tough to read, I'm not privy to Sean Og's family situation or whether there's some rift there perhaps ? Anyway it's a book that would be quite interesting.

Well said. I suppose to answer Tommy's point the reason I found it a hard read is because Sean Ogs story is a very well known one in gaa history of a young lad with different skin who picked up hurling later than most who went on to become an iconic player, captain of Cork and hurler of the year.

We all rejoiced in that and it's hard to realise there was a lot of pain behind that for him.

As far as I know it is Michael Moynihan that helped him write it by the way.

"She was the only person who showed you any love and affection, no matter how you played. Any true love we got as kids came from Mum". That sentence seems to refer to perceived problems far more serious than disappointment with a poor sporting performance. It's a very serious statement. You'd expect it was very difficult to write and difficult, if you are a family member, to read. Maybe in the context of the overall book, the assessment of his father is tempered by other reflections.

Sean Og's dad sounds like a stereotypical northern psycho. If he was anyone else I'd say frank would give him the cork minors gig.

I loled.

Séan Óg has told the truth, and that's what I want from an autobiography. Not sugar-coated 'the craic we had' drivel.
