The Hurlers tells the story of the first All-Ireland hurling championship and the making of the modern game.
It gives an account of the transformation of hurling being played just in a few isolated rural pockets, and according to no fixed set of rules to the sport it is today. The book focuses on the men who made it happen, the political background and the rows that marked the early years of the GAA. Paul documents how sport, culture and politics mixed together to create the organisation we have. A 20 year labour of love for author Paul Rouse, The Hurlers is a must read for any sports fan in your life.
