The Clash of the Ash in Foreign Fields: Hurling Abroad
Originally intended as a chapter in A History of Hurling, the material was expanded into a stand-alone publication, and this book is the result.
The material is far-flung geographically tracing the history of hurling wherever the Irish diaspora lived in any sizeable numbers. The chapters cover Britain, Europe, North America, Argentina, South Africa and Australasia.
The photographs alone are one of the great merits of this publication. Nowhere else will one find such a complete photographic record of hurling in foreign lands.
