Seamus J. King, The Little Book of Hurling, History Press Limited, 2020
Ireland's love affair with Gaelic Games in general, and Hurling in particular, has never dimmed. Through the lean days of hunger and emigration, through the champagne-mojito-flavoured years of the Celtic Tiger and on after it slunk away with its tail between its legs, Ireland's love for 'our games' has endured.Fact-packed but light-hearted in style, this reliable reference book and a quirky guide reveals little-known facts, classic matches and amusing anecdotes, alongside a general history of the game. This is a book that can be dipped into time and time again to reveal something new about our ancient sport.
