"Ruanaidh" follows to its conclusion the extraordinary life of Art Rooney, Sr. - the Chief. The strange-looking title (pronounced Ru-ah-nee) is the Gaelic word for Rooney.

Born in 1935, Art Rooney, Jr., is the second of the Chief's five sons. He listened to his father's stories and observed him in action, attempting to understand how this small-time politician and big-time horse player ended up as a beloved folk hero, the creator, after many false starts, of a football dynasty, and "a great American sportsman." For obvious reasons, the picture of Art Rooney, Sr. that emerges could not be more fully drawn.

There emerges, also, in "Ruanaidh," a marvelous supporting cast of relatives, in-laws, colleagues, rivals, hangers-on, and free spirits, of saints and sinners, titans and nobodies. About each there are stories that only a Ru-ah-nee could have known. In the 1970s, it was Art Rooney, Jr. who supervised the scouting and drafting of the Steelers' first four Super Bowl championship teams. And here he relates, with no animosity, his quest for talented players that would lead the Steelers to NFL Championships.

  • A detailed, conversational story of the Rooneys, esp from Art, Sr. (AJR), onward and the development of the Steelers. I found the first third of the book especially fascinating, detailing the life of AJR and his family and the milieu of the North Side of Pittsburgh in the '30s and 40's. The book is full of interesting anecdotes and is long, but can be read intermittently without really losing the track of the story. It's a great read for those of us who became avid Steeler fans around the time they became a contending team in the NFL, and it supplies lots of background about the preceding years when the Steelers were perennial losers. I very much recommend it.

  • Good service. Great book. Tremendously informative on the history of Pittsburgh, the Steelers football team and the fascinating story of the Rooney family.

  • Who wouldn't want to know about the Rooneys - and their clan - along with all of the Maras and how they are all connected.
