Book Launch & Talk: The Pressure Game – Kevin McStay

The Pressure Game – Book Launch & Talk On Management by Kevin McStay

Date: Friday, October 11th at 8pm
Venue: An Sportlann, Castlebar
MC: Martin Carney
Launch by Eileen Dunne

For the first time, one of the top GAA managers in the country has revealed the inside story of what it’s like to ‘Walk the Walk on a County Sideline’. Former Mayo All-Star footballer Kevin McStay gave up 20 years of working as a commentator and analyst on RTÉ’s ‘Sunday Game’ to take up the position of Roscommon team manager in 2016.

The whole country watched to see how he would survive on the sideline – and how he would face up to the pressures of facing Jim’s Gavin’s Dublin, Mayo and Kerry and Tyrone, on the toughest stage in Gaelic football.

In his three years in charge, McStay led Roscommon to a Connacht title in 2017 and a prized place in the Super 8s in 2018 before quitting the job. He has now returned to the RTE broadcasting booth.

This is the amazing inside story of the ‘The Pressure Game’.
