9780957207202: The Godfather of Modern Hurling: The Fr Tommy Maher Story - How the Kilkenny Priest Drew a New Blueprint for the National Game

This books tells the story of Father Tommy Maher and the great Leinster Hurling final in 1957, when he took his unconsidered team to victory over the great Wexford team of the 1950s. This is the story of how Father Maher, who built the Kilkenny team into the success story that they still are today, who helped the county to win seven All Ireland senior titles during his 21 years (1957-78) as coach. 'What made the book a pleasure to research and write was the fact that so many people had such good things to say about Monsignor Maher,' Mr McEvoy reveals. 'One phrase recurred. 'A man before his time.' He was, simply, a genius, yet at the same time a very humble person.' Among the former Kilkenny stars quoted in the book are Paddy Buggy, Sean Clohosey, Johnny McGovern, Dick Rockett, Seamus Cleere, Pa Dillon, Tom Walsh, Pat Henderson, Chunky O'Brien, Mick Crotty, Kieran Purcell and Noel Skehan.
