    Title: Gunshots & Goalposts
    Sub-title: The Story of Northern Irish Football
    By (author): Benjamin Roberts
    ISBN10-13: 1905575114 : 9781905575114
    Protestant v Catholic, Unionist v Nationalist, East v West, their team against my team. This is the story of Northern Irish football and so much more: the tournaments, the near misses, the unsung heroes and unlikely tales of triumph amid adversity. George Best, David Healy, Peter Doherty and all the big names throughout the eras are traced to their roots 'back home' as Roberts shines a light on the human dimension to some of Ulster's most famous ninety-minute sons. Exploring sectarianism, shipbuilding and sliding tackles, Roberts has finally provided a definitive account of the beautiful game in this often troubled land.

    Reviews:
    '[A] throroughly researched history, peppered with anecdotes...a book which gets that the relationship between football and politics is nowhere more keen than in the Northern Irish game.' - Tim Marshall - author of 'Dirty Northern Bastards - A History of Britain's Football Chants' 'Anyone interested in Irish football, North or South, should read this. Ethnic rivalry, religious prejudice and recurring violence - the Beautiful Game as played out against the background of a bitterly divided Northern Ireland.' - Paddy Agnew, Rome correspondent for the Irish Times, writer for World Soccer

    Sub-title: Reflections on a Life in Art
    By (author): Ernest Greenwood
    ISBN10-13: 190557505X : 9781905575053
    This book is a history of my life in art. It also includes my gratitude to the many friends and other influences that have shaped and enriched my days. About three years ago my wife and I were forced, because of declining health, to sell the early sixteenth-century Hall House in which we had lived for forty-five years. From my studio window I had a clear view across our paddock, with grazing sheep, towards a gently rising hill covered with woodland providing splendid habitat for wildlife. Behind the house, on the North Downs lived the fox, badger, the sloping meadows, then unploughed, and many wild flowers, including orchids. My pictures of this period were mostly large watercolours which are not by any means conventional topographical 'views'. They were not painted on location but were designed from relevant drawings. It was the loss of this motivating environment which unexpectedly influenced my creative energy for new paintings. However, age and circumstances have robbed me of my ability to paint and so, after a few attempts at combating this inactivity, I began jotting down notes about our past lives, which eventually needed to be put down in chronological order. It was then that I saw the possibility, by concentrating on the idea of a book, of compensating; for painting with writing. My life in the arts has occupied my time, energy and thoughts for almost ninety years. From about the age of eight my often expressed wish was to be an artist. long before I knew the meaning of the word but, by the age of fourteen, my interests had broadened to include poetry, music, history and philosophy. I grew hungry for books, started to collect and read into the early hours, as is recorded in these memoirs. These interests coupled with a love of nature, have not only enriched my days, but have had a subconscious influence upon my paintings, with a secret relationship with the Haywain!

    Title: Last of Seven
    Sub-title: Part II: Completed Works & Sketches from My Life in Art
    By (author): Ernest Greenwood
    ISBN10-13: 1905575068 : 9781905575060
    The writings which comprise my memoirs were-started over twenty years .ago when I was still painting. Verse can express, emotions of love, joy and sadness in a manner divorced from most painters' subject matter. This, I find, is especially so nowadays in the prevalence of the abstract -- with most practitioners' work having many human verities absent -- not only in Europe but world-wide. This change in thinking has been enormous and is -one that is seen most clearly in the visual arts. Now that circumstances make painting impossible for me, writing has moved into first place. Even so, as with painting, progress has been slow. But writing is so very different from painting -- so many thoughts and imaginative images, often distantly or subtly related, can imbue a poem with a lasting mystery, or a glimpse into a lovely insubstantial world. This volume completes my Trilogy -- My Life, My Painting and finally My Writing. Although they have emerged as separate books, the writing of Part III was essential to complete the narrative as I conceived it -- there has been a great deal to think about, much to ponder over. It is my intention that readers should see my work and life as constituting one narrative even though Part I and Part II are published in two separate volumes. Bringing these memoirs to a satisfactory conclusion has been difficult, yet I think it is in this final Part II that the reader will at last find a brief summary of my work, my life and my thinking.
