Abstract:

"In 1926 Cork hurlers and Laois footballers won the first ever national league finals. Since then there have been some classic contests in the competition and all 32 counties plus New York have played in either a league semi-final or final. Many memorable finals featured outstanding performances and heart-stopping moments that gave enormous pleasure to a multitude of followers over the years." "Tom Morrisson, in this unique history of 76 years of national league finals, describes over 180 games. Thorough research, interviews with major stars of the past and present, match programmes and newspaper accounts have been used to compile accurate match reports plus fascinating detail on players and team line-outs. Accompanied, where possible, by team photographs, many rarely seen or published, the overall result is a stirring story of the drama and tension in these games involving over 4500 players and referees." "For The Record is a worthy salute to all the teams, to the great players who graced these games and to their followers who travelled in their thousands. Covering every league final and packed full with statistics and facts galore, it will satisfy the thirst of many a fan."--BOOK JACKET.
