There are parts of Ireland where hurling is life. Luckily for young Henry Shefflin, his home village of Ballyhale in County Kilkenny is one such place. Henry is from a hurling stronghold where every thought is about the next point, the next goal, the next match. But there’s only one match anyone talks about come September – the All-Ireland Final.

Can Henry be as good a hurler as his father and brothers? Can he train hard and overcome injuries and disappointments to one day play at Croke Park for his beloved county?

King Henry is the incredible story of how Henry Shefflin became the greatest hurling player of all time.

Paul O’Flynn is an RTÉ News and Sport presenter and journalist. He is a keen sportsman and amateur swimmer and in 2018 was the winner of the Liffey Swim. He has written three Irish Sporting Legends biographies, Josh the Flyer, King Henry and Go, Johnny, Go!
