Roots and Irish Football Culture


The book "Roots and Irish Football Culture" deals with my own Irish descent and the various types of fandom around the Cork City Football Club.

Compared to Germany, everything seems to be different in Ireland: the stadium, the club, the fans. Overall, it did not appear to be as highly regarded as in Germany. I started to make contact with fans of the Cork City FC. For a month, I accompanied them to every match they played at home or away – always having my camera with me to document important moments and the general atmosphere.
