Titel: Christy Ring - Hurling's Greatest.
Verlag: Cork, Collins Press
8°. 374 pages. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket. Excellent, close to new condition of this rare, out-of-print Hardcover-version of this book. Christy Ring from Cloyne, County Cork, is regarded as the greatest hurler of all time. He won eight senior All-Ireland medals and eighteen Railway Cup medals in his 24-year career before retiring from inter-county hurling aged 43. He always tried to do the impossible and against him no game was won until the final whistle. His mastery of the skills of hurling was equalled only by his dedication to Cork. Tim Horgan traces Christy's playing career with its many highlights and captures his unique charisma that excited and attracted people to him. He pays due respect to Christy s opponents and the drab conditions in which all lived and played. Included are Ben Kiely's report on Christy playing at the opening of Casement Park, Belfast, in 1953, and a fascinating interview before the 1953 All-Ireland. It is a lively, affectionate account of Christy Ring s lifelong commitment to hurling, embellished with many previously unpublished photos, memories of great players, personalities and glorious games won and lost.
