Christy Ring is regarded as the greatest hurler of all time. His mastery of hurling was equaled only by his dedication to Cork. He won eight senior All-Ireland medals, 18 Railway Cup medals and 14 Cork Senior Championship medals before retiring at the age of 46. Against him, no game was won until the final whistle. Tim Horgan traces Christy's playing career and captures the unique charisma that excited and attracted people to him. It is a lively, affectionate account of his lifelong commitment to hurling, embellished with memories of great players and personalities, and glorious games won and lost.
