RTE commentator Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh launched Hooked On Hurling written by five TY students of St Mary's Secondary School Nenagh in Easons Nenagh on Monday, March 5.

As part of the publication, the students, Sarah Madden, Eileen Gleeson, Orla Maher, Grace O'Dwyer and Emer Tuohy, interviewed more than 30 senior inter-county hurling and camogie players.

All five authors are camogie stars with their respective clubs in Silvermines, Toomevara and Burgess.

They described their book as being different from any other sports book as it contains exclusive information about the lives of hurlers, tips on injury prevention from a top class physio and healthy recipes for pre-match meals.

Liam Sheedy and Derek Ryan gave them a manager’s view of the game.

The successful launch was attended by teachers and players who made contributions to the publication.

The TY students are donating 25 per cent of their profits to Crumlin Children’s Hospital.

During the launch, the students also got to meet former Tipperary greats Deirdre Hughes, Len Gaynor and Michael Cleary.
