This is a comprehensive history of Clare hurling, from pre-GAA times to the current championships. It includes contemporary written reports, but draws especially on over 130 interviews, many of these with the living greats of Clare hurling whose memories stretch back to the period of World War I. Among the better known of these personalities are John Joe Doyle, Jimmy Smyth and John Callinan from earlier eras, and current players, such as Brian Lohan, Ger "Sparrow" O'Loughlin and Ger Loughnane. The fans and supporters also play a part, including a Miss Elizabeth Crimmins from Newmarket-on-Fergus, now aged 100, who attended an All-Ireland hurling final in Dublin in 1914.
