These are exceptional times for the game of hurling. The skill, speed and summer long edge of the seat drama of recent All Ireland championships has led many to conclude that something very special is happening in the ancient game. The Kilkenny team of the last decade has undoubtedly been the greatest in the history of hurling. Their extraordinary record speaks for itself. But has a chink finally begun to appear in Kilkennya€™s armour? Or is it that the challengers have begun to catch up, at last recognising the immense effort required to compete at the highest level? Fields Of Fire tells the story of Kilkennya€™s phenomenal success and explores how the Cats became an almost indomitable force. But it also looks at the profound challenge which their supremacy presented to other counties, revealing how the struggle for competitiveness has positively transformed the game. Old rivals have adapted and learned. But new powers too have emerged a€“ from Clare and from Limerick, from Dublin and from Waterford - young bloods who do not fear the Kings of the Game. Drawing on exclusive interviews with dozens of current and former legends, among them Eddie Brennan, Cha Fitzpatrick, Brendan Cummins, John Mullane, Davy Fitzgerald, Damien Hayes, Liam Dunne, DJ Carey and Ger Cunningham, award-winning journalist Damian Lawlor offers a unique and compelling insight into hurlinga€™s spectacular renaissance.More thanonce theywere accused ofgoing beyond the boundsoffair play. Butmaybe ... Still, thecritics werenow on the alert, andsoon there was a new charge ontherap sheet a€“ Kilkenny wereallegedly aping the socalled Tyrone football template.
