‘Compelling’ Irish Times Aidan O’Mahony was at peak physical fitness and making his mark on the Kerry Senior Football team when he made the devastating choice to walk away from it all.
Now, in his powerfully honest memoir, Aidan looks at the events leading up to this moment: the extreme discipline and pressure involved in striving for maximum physical strength, struggling with the asthma that had plagued him since childhood; the on-pitch altercation that took a toll on his mental health; the controversy over a failed drug test and the intense media scrutiny he found himself facing.
He also tells of how, in the weeks that followed him quitting the game, he made a decision which would ultimately change everything.
