The old rivalries between these three counties are around as long as the GAA itself, and as hard-fought and intensely felt now as any time over the past hundred and twenty years.

This book honours that great tradition and celebrates the wins and losses that brought excitement, pain and intensity to the followers of these three counties. The book also examines how it is that these three kings rise to the top year after year.

These hurling moments live on in the imagination and in conversation, forever being honed and revisited. The best sporting moments in the lives of hurling followers.

The careers of the star players – Ring, Doyle, Keher, Carey, Barry-Murphy, Ó hAilpín, Shefflin, and more – are followed here in loving detail. This is the full story of these three amazing counties – the highlights, rivalries and the greatest matches are explored in all their fervour and desperation.

Illustrated with action-packed photos.
