Izzy’s Magical Football Adventure
Izzy is a seven-year-old girl who lives in Ireland and loves all sport, especially Gaelic Football.
Izzy plays football with her brothers on a regular basis in their back garden and dreams of playing for her county in the All Ireland Ladies Football Final in Croke Park when she is older.
One day, Izzy puts on her great grandmother’s bracelet, which is made of old All Ireland medals that her great grandmother won a long time ago, and something unexpected and magical happens, which may make Izzy’s Croke Park dream a reality sooner than she expected…………….
This book is aimed at readers from age seven onwards starting to read independently. It is based around the themes of girls in sport, encouraging girls to play sport and girl’s ability to play sport at a high level, while also having a fun magical theme. It could also be read to a younger child.

Emma Larkin lives in Kerry in Ireland with her husband and four children. She is the founder of “Emma Larkin Books”. “Izzy’s Magical Soccer Adventure” is her fifth book and is the fourth in the “Izzy” series. The other three books in the series, “Izzy’s Magical Football Adventure”, “Izzy’s Magical Camogie Adventure” and “Izzy’s Magical Christmas Adventure” were published in 2019, 2020 and 2021 respectively. Following on from the success of her “Izzy” series, Emma signed with O’Brien Press in 2022 to write a Gaelic games themed fiction book for older children. “Twin Power: Throw In” was published by O’Brien Press in March 2022. Emma is currently working on the sequel to “Throw In” for O’Brien Press. Emma will continue to develop the “Izzy’s Magical Adventures in Sport” series of books, as well as the Twin Power series.
Emma’s inspiration to write her books was her grandmother, Maureen Hennebry, née
Cashman. She was on the Cork camogie team which won the All-Ireland Camogie Championship three times in row between 1939 and 1941. Emma hopes that all young girls and boys who read this book will enjoy it and will be inspired to play not only Gaelic football and camogie, but all sports.
