Notre Dame's Happy Returns : Dublin, the Experience, the Game Hardback
Notre Dame fans' enchantment with the Emerald Isle plays a close second only to their devotion to Fighting Irish football.
Now the allure of both Ireland and Notre Dame football are brought together in Notre Dame's Happy Returns: Dublin, the Experience, the Game.
In this unique book, well-known photographer Matt Cashore captures some of the sights, historic places, and cultural riches that make Ireland special for fans of the Fighting Irish.
The exceptional photographs focus on Ireland's capital city Dublin, Notre Dame's Catholic tradition of service in Ireland, and the university's commitment to scholarship through the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies.
In addition, the book explores how football was introduced in Ireland and Notre Dame's role in elevating the sport there, and contains a special section on the 2012 Notre Dame-Navy game in Dublin. Woven together with brief cultural and historical captions, the book contains dozens of full-page photographs of many of Dublin's notable landmarks, churches, and structures, which capture the mythical attraction of one of Europe's most vibrant cities and offer readers a glimpse of Dublin's rich literary and cultural heritage.
Notre Dame's Happy Returns is a must have for those who were there for Notre Dame's historic 2012 football game with Navy in Aviva Stadium as well as for all true Notre Dame football fans.
