Sean Boylan Summary

Sean Boylan: The Will to Win by Sean Boylan

Renowned as the manager who brought the Sam Maguire to Meath after a gap of twenty years - and then brought it back again three more times - Boylan has led an interesting and extraordinary life.

Healer, herbalist, GAA manager, family man - he is an inspiration to all who come in contact with him. Here his profound understanding of the human spirit, of what really makes people tick, of how to engage a person's deepest loyalty shines through every sentence. This is a book of celebration of the best in people - his people.

Boylan's own account of his years as spoken to John Quinn. His own voice - his own words.

Sean Boylan Reviews

'An engaging autobiography . . . the Dunboyne native is a remarkable man in several ways and his career as a football manager is not the sole point of interest. As well as instructive glimpses of players with which he worked, there are compelling sections on his personal life and his work as a herbalist .. .The subject's charisma shines'

-- Kilkenny Voice

'Boylan has led an interesting and extraordinary life. Here we are exposed to his profound understanding of the human spirit and his opinion of what really makes people tick'
