About the Author

Denis O'Brien was born in Dublin, Ireland on St Patrick's Day in 1957 ... couldn't take the name 'Patrick' as another brother before had that honor. He emigrated to America at the age of 26 to New York and worked in the restaurant and hotel business. He later moved to Boston and harboring a wish to write, he put himself through Third Level Education when graduating in Journalism & Media Arts from Emerson College. Having a passion for Gaelic Sports, he freelanced for local and New York Irish papers covering weekly games at Canton MA and also published one of the first Blogs reporting on the games from America. After 18 years in the United States he returned to Ireland in 2007 to live in 'Lovely' Leitrim where he worked as a Freelance Journalist and later joined the Leitrim Post Newspaper. After the paper went out of business, due to the economic meltdown, he set about reporting on Gaelic Sports news worldwide and founded the website and podcast Gaelic Sports Cast which he writes, presents and produces. His reporting features skype interviews with Gaelic Sports sources on the ground in America, Canada, UK, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and they are totally unique. 'Hurling USA: America Discovers an Ancient Irish Sport' is his first book and it was inspired by his reporting in America and the stories he uncovered in his podcast. He has written for the Boston Irish Reporter, the New York Irish Examiner, contributed to the Irish Examiner, Leitrim Observer, Anglo Celt, The Sligo Champion, Sligo Weekender, Donegal News, Shannonside Radio, and Ocean FM Radio.
