Reviews for Great Irish Sports Stars: Sonia O’Sullivan

‘Sonia’s courage, determination and dedication shine through in this wonderfully engaging book.’

Books Make Things Better, Children’s Books Ireland

‘what young readers will hopefully draw from Mac a’Bháird’s new children’s biography of Sonia is inspiration. The everyday ordinariness of her early days and the importance of the sweetshops, friendships – and the occasional bag of greasy chips – make this a very human story of the power of determination, which may help light the spark that fires determined athletes of the future.’

The Echo

‘Natasha Mac a’Bháird has brought to life the true nature of our super athlete Sonia … An excellent biography. Suitable for ages nine and up.’

Irish Examiner

‘An insight into the grit and determination that turned a sporty schoolgirl into an Olympic medallist.’
