Dick Fitzgerald writes ‘How to play Gaelic football’.

Fitzgerald brings the game to book

Became the first man to captain a side to back to back All-Irelands in 1913 and 1914, among the five All Irelands and ten Munster titles he won in a 13-year intercounty career. Retired in 1915 and was a driving force in GAA administration.  But it was his coaching manual, called “more or less the Koran” of Gaelic football by Sean Purcell which made him the first superstar of the game.
