“Breaking 80: The Life and Times of Joe Carr” is a biography of one of Ireland’s most celebrated amateur golfers, the legendary Joe Carr.

Joe Carr, born Joseph Benedict Waters, had an extraordinary life, starting from his birth in Inchicore, Dublin, on February 18, 1922. The book reveals that Joe was just ten days old when he was entrusted to his aunt and uncle, who raised him at Portmarnock Golf Club, where his love for golf began. This early shift in family was a pivotal moment that set the course for his future in golf.

Carr’s achievements in golf were remarkable. He won three British Amateur titles and played on ten Walker Cup teams and was the first Irishman to become captain of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews.
