Sport, Sectarianism and Society in a Divided Ireland by John Sugden, Alan Bairner

This text examines the political nature of sport and leisure in Northern Ireland as an (often overlooked) aspect of the divided community. The politics of partition are integral to the rivalry between clubs, to the support the clubs receive, and even to the very choice of games played and watched.
