There is an 'F' in Hurling

There is an 'F' in Hurling

In the overwhelmingly football heartland of North county Dublin, Aidan Lenehan decided to start up a hurling team called the Wild Geese club. This is an inspiring story of sport played off the beaten track.

The book traces how he himself began playing again at 37 and how he cajoled older and younger friends and footballers from the vicinity to join in his pilgrimage. It wasn't all plain sailing either as having started out in the Dublin E junior ranks, they hit the dizzy ranks of F- grade (hence the title of the book) before the influx of younger players saw them move back up in the hurling world.

The book is not just about creating an oasis for the national game where none previously existed - it faithfully recounts daily club life and the efforts to maintain enthusiasm for a project as the lure of Gaelic football and soccer see numbers sometimes whittled down to the minimum. It is an account of the 'ordinary plenty' of the GAA world which will resonate with anyone who has either played or supported a club team.
