Introducing the first illustrated novel about hurling!

Something has to be done…Ray is getting tired of losing every match he plays with his team, the Ballybreen Terriers. Not only are they constantly at the bottom of the league, they have to face the gloating of rival Dennis ‘Dirty Den’ Conway.

Before they become the laughing stock, Ray persuades Fintan Heffernan, ex-star player of U10’s to leave his early retirement and computer games to help bring ‘Dirty Den’ down and lead the Ballybreen Terriers to the victory they deserve.

Alan Nolan lives and works in Bray, County Wicklow, Ireland. He has written and illustrated many books and comics for children and grown-ups, including Fintan’s Fifteen, Conor's Caveman and the Murder Can Be Fatal series.

despite not having the slightest interest in hurling, I thoroughly enjoyed this book … Alan Nolan uses a clever combination of story genre-text, cartoon and graphic novel to tell his story, which makes the overall experience of reading it very, very enjoyable
