The Roscommon Football Legends book, pays tribute to the 1977-80 team, was recently launched across County Roscommon.

The book, in association with Pieta House, is jam-packed with interviews and reflections plus 170 images from that time.

Despite the disappointment of losing the 1980 All-Ireland Final, Roscommon supporters were treated to four great years as they watched that 1977-80 team win four Connacht titles in a row and National League honours in 1979. The team was also full of household names, not least the late Dermot Earley.
