Hurling's top 20

£4.99

Product description

Published to coincide with the RTE radio series "Hurling's Top 20", author and broadcaster Colm Keane profiles 20 of the greatest hurling legends to grace the game: from Christy Ring, Mick Mackey, Jack Lynch and Tony Reddin to more recent heroes such as Nicky English, Joe Cooney, Brian Whelahan and D.J. Carey. Tipperary's John Doyle and Jimmy Doyle, Kilkenny's Eddie Keher and Noel Skehan, along with Cork's Ray Cummins and Jimmy Barry-Murphy recall their glory years. Offaly's Joe Dooley together with Wexford's Billy Rackard and Tony Doran describe how their counties beat the odds, turning the tables on the traditional hurling powers. Jimmy Smyth describes Clare's fallow years, while Waterford's glory years in the 1940s and 50s are recalled through career profiles of John Keane and Tom Cheasty. "Hurling's Top 20" chronicles over half a century of hurling history, as seen through the eyes of those who have played at the highest level of the game. It incorporates amusing anecdotes, first-hand match descriptions and behind-the-scenes analysis.
