It Looks Like Jim McGuinness Has A Book Out Later This Year

It Looks Like Jim McGuinness Has A Book Out Later This Year

A new book titled 'Until Victory Always' by Jim McGuinness is scheduled for publication on Amazon.co.uk later this year - October 23rd to be exact.

The publication will come just over a year after McGuinness' departure as Donegal manager.


According to the synopsis, it will 'reveal what life was like inside the Donegal camp' during his tenure.

When Jim McGuinness took over as manager of the Donegal senior football team in the autumn of 2010, they'd been dismissed as a joke; a bunch of dilettantes too fond of the night life. When he stepped down four years later, they had won three Ulster championships, the 2012 All-Ireland title and contested the 2014 All-Ireland final against Kerry.

This is the story of how he combined a unique vision and ferocious drive to create a powerful and disciplined team that bucked history and defied every expectation.

McGuinness sent a shockwave through Gaelic games by devising an approach which polarised opinion and forced fans, players and managers alike to look at the game differently. From the outside, what Donegal were doing appeared mysterious, dark and fearsome.

Here, and for the first time, McGuinness reveals what life was like inside the Donegal camp and reflects on the decisions and experiences that propelled his players to the summit of the sport.

A moving and honest meditation on the nature of sportsmanship, dedication and what it means to lead, Until Victory Always is an honest and inspiring account of achievement in the face of incredible adversity.

The title is a Che Guevara quote which was emblazoned on murals of McGuinness around Donegal during his reign.
