Product description

Considered the greatest hurler of his generation, there was one prize that always eluded Joe Canning …

Joe Canning was hurling for as long as he could remember. Born into a famous hurling family in Gortanumera, Co. Galway, in 1988, he quickly showed the skills that he would become famous for: bursting onto the scene for the Galway minors aged just 16, and winning an All-Ireland club medal. His career should have been perfect after that, but further glory didn’t follow. When Joe reached the senior hurling team, Galway struggled against their main rivals Kilkenny and other great teams, and Joe experienced constant setbacks and disappointments.

But this hurler is no quitter. He continued to train hard, kept his focus and now, finally in 2017, he finds himself once again at Croke Park, ready to take a senior All-Ireland hurling medal. Can this hero fulfil his destiny and make his lifelong dream come true?
