Jimmy Gray Autobiography: The Bluest Sky

Jimmy Gray Autobiography: The Bluest Sky

Thu, 5th May 2022

Jimmy Gray is the Godfather of Dublin GAA. 

The sitting President of Dublin County Board, he has given a lifetime to football and hurling in the county. 

Jimmy represented the county in both codes through the 1950s and 60s – and was goalkeeper on the last Dublin team to contest an All-Ireland hurling final, when The Dubs lost to Tipperary in 1961. 

Jimmy was chairman of the Dublin County Board through the 70s, and was the inspiration for the revival of football in the county when he appointed Kevin Heffernan as manager in 1973, thereby giving life to Heffo’s Army and the team which transformed the GAA in Ireland, winning three All-Ireland titles in four years! 

A founder of Na Fianna GAA club, Jimmy was also chairman of the Leinster Council. 

The launch of his autobiography- "The Bluest Sky"- will take place at Na Fianna GAA Club on Wednesday 18th May at 7.30pm. Free tickets are available here.
