This Is Our Year’ is the story of nine counties competing in the ultra-competitive Ulster Football Championship as seen through the eyes of those within each camp.Declan Bogue’s new book is a unique insight into how the counties simultaneously prepared for, played in and ultimately departed the 2011 championship.

It is a work of many voices, many tones and many contexts as different approaches from county to county, different attitudes to winning and losing and different outcomes are faithfully documented and interwoven into a fascinating narrative.From the early season turmoil of another tragedy in Tyrone to the Fermanagh players’ strike right through to the crowning of Donegal as Ulster Champions and into further drama in the All-Ireland series, this book will captivate you from first page to last and will become a benchmark work for all future books on the GAA.The book hasn’t met everyone’s approval with Donegal manager Jim McGuinness so furious that Kevin Cassidy co-operated without his knowledge that he dropped him off the Donegal panel and stopped him from attending the county’s planned foreign holiday.

Cassidy had been the star of Donegal’s major victories in 2011, culminating when he kicked that fantastic winning point against Kildare in the All Ireland SF championships.But the straight-talking Gweedore man suffered a serious out of season blow by McGuinness’s serious over-reaction of banning players from attending the Donegal launch of the book and later by kicking him off the panel.It is in this context that the comment made by Eugene McGee was indeed prescient.
