In August 2008 Cork City FC found itself in financial difficulties that threatened the club's very existence. In this book, Neal Horgan, a professional footballer with the club, and with the benefit of this unique viewpoint, presents his account of the drama as it unfolded. The sudden removal of financial support by the previous backers, the take-over of the club by a brand new chairman and the success of the players in winning the All-Ireland competition, 'the Setanta Cup, ' are all described in a dramatic period for the club. It has been critically acclaimed.
This book covers Cork City's 2008 season and is the first book in the Series ' The Fall, Death and Rise of Cork City FC'.
Horgan's second book in this series 'Second City' chartering the even darker 2009 season will be published in November 2016.
