Spa and Kerry footballing legend Donie O'Sullivan will be launching his autobiography - 'Donie O'Sullivan: A Footballer, Once' in December.

It'll take place at Spa’s clubhouse on December 2.

O’Sullivan, a four-time All-Ireland medallist with Kerry in 1962, 1969, 1970 and 1975 was also a member of the legendary East Kerry team of the early 1970s. He holds an All-Ireland club medal from 1971 with East Kerry.

He was Kerry’s first ever All-Star in 1971 and was inducted to the Munster Hall of Fame in 2019.

In 2004 he was inducted to the Kick Fada Hall of Fame as a result of his renowned accuracy and distance kicking skills.

The book was co-written by local sports reporter Jimmy O’Sullivan-Darcy and is published by Hero Books.

It will be on sale in Spa GAA on the night and, after the launch will not go on general sale, instead it will be offered through Amazon either as an eBook, a paperback or a hardback.

“Everyone is invited to join us on the night for a celebration of Donie, his footballing career and his lasting legacy with Kerry GAA and Spa GAA,” Spa GAA PRO, Deirdre O'Sullivan Darcy, said.

The event gets underway at 7.30pm and some special guests will be in attendance. Refreshments will be served.
