Description

Christy Ring from Cloyne, County Cork, is regarded as the greatest hurler of all time. Tim Horgan traces his playing career with its many highlights and captures his unique charisma that excited and attracted people to him It pays due respect to his opponents and the drab conditions in which all lived and played. Included is Ben Kiely’s report on Christy playing at the opening of Casement Park, Belfast, in 1953, and an unpublished interview before the 1953 All-Ireland. It is a lively, affectionate account of his lifelong commitment to hurling, embellished with memories of great players and personalities, and glorious games won and lost.
