Eoin Madden’s having a busy term with friend issues, schoolwork and new rugby challenges; he’s been moved up to train with the Junior Cup team, which is hard work, plus there’s trouble in his dormitory as mobile phones start going missing!

But as usual there are ghostly goings-on in Castlerock school – what’s the link between Eoin’s history lessons and the new spirit he’s spotted wearing a Belvedere rugby jersey? … Historical and modern mysteries combine in this intriguing tale of rugby, rebellion and ghosts.

Children’s Books Ireland Recommended Reading Guide

an old-fashioned adventure story … The descriptions of rugby practice sessions and matches would make little sense to anyone unfamiliar with the game, but these sections are quite short and the mystery and adventure elements of the book are enough to keep more general readers interested …The narrative moves at a brisk pace and the language is clear enough for readers of nine and over. On the whole, a very enjoyable book

Historical Novel Society

a great book … gripping … a brilliant read for ages 8 years upwards … a knowledge of rugby is not necessary but could make it more enjoyable
