Against the Wind is a comprehensive history of the Irish field sport of hurling in County Clare. It draws on over 130 interviews with the living greats of Clam hurling whose memories stretch back to the period of the First World War. Among these are John Joe Doyle, Jimmy Smyth and John Callinan from earlier eras, and current players such as Brian Lohan, Get "Sparrow" O'Loughlin and Get Loughnane. This lively account of a sporting tradition as rich as Clare's musical heritage is a must-have for lovers of hurling and sport in general -- and for those who enjoy a nostalgic look at the pleasures of the past.
