‘David O'Leary is entrusted with the responsibility of taking the penalty that could send Ireland to the quarter-finals of the World Cup. This kick can decide it all. The nation holds its breath … Yes, we're there!'Written with his trademark warmth and candour, The Nation Holds Its Breath is George Hamilton's eagerly awaited and wonderfully told journey through a rich and varied career in broadcasting.As the undisputed voice of Irish football, George's evocative and celebrated commentary is familiar to millions. He has captured the highs and lows of Irish sport for generations of fans, ever since he first took up the microphone in the mid-seventies, and he has been enthralling his audiences ever since.The listener will be captivated as George takes us on an affectionate journey from the Cregagh Road in East Belfast to an emotional farewell salute from Big Jack Charlton on the hallowed Anfield turf in 1995. The destinations – Stuttgart, Genoa, New Jersey – will be familiar, the journeys in between, anything but. A must-listen memoir from one of Ireland's truly undeniable national treasures.
