Faces from the media world were out in force last night at the launch of a book charting 30 years of sports writing.
Former RTE pundit Eamon Dunphy and writer Paul Kimmage were among those who turned out to support Sunday Independent sports editor John Greene at the launch of On The Seventh Day at Hodges Figgis on Dawson Street.
John was joined by his wife Catherine and his young family at the launch, also attended by Minister for European Affairs Helen McEntee.
Michael Doorly, chief executive of Independent News and Media - which publishes this newspaper - and INM colleagues including journalist Marie Crowe were also at the launch.
Stories by Dunphy and Kimmage are included in the book, a diverse collection of articles from the sports desk over the past 30 years.
Kimmage's work, which tells the story of Ireland's memorable win over Holland in 2001, opens the book, and other featured writers include Joe Brolly, Neil Francis, Colm O'Rourke and Richard Sadlier.
GAA, soccer, rugby, golf, athletics, racing, boxing and snooker are covered.
The book is priced at €19.99.
