Quite simply, EVERY SINGLE BALL is the story of one of Ireland s greatest sporting comebacks, sportsmen and sports teams.
Brian Corcoran is one of the most respected hurlers and dual players of his generation. He was named Hurler of the Year in 1992 and again in 1999, when he was also awarded the first All Ireland senior medal. At the start of 2002, he quit both club and inter-county hurling but came out of retirement two years later to win an All Ireland and an All Star, and, in 2005, another All Ireland. Kieran Shannon is chief Gaelic Games correspondent of the Sunday Tribune. The winner of the 2003 GAA McNamee Award, he has co-written two other highly-acclaimed books: Hooked with Justin McCarthy and Kicking Down Heaven's Door with Mickey Harte. He has previously worked with the Irish Examiner and the Sunday Independent.
