First awarded in 1923, Sean Og O Ceallachain and Owen McCann survey every decade since then, recalling many of the most famous All-Ireland hurling finals:

* The thunder and lightning final of 1939, played in a monsoon on the day World War II broke out * The great Cork and Wexford finals of the 1950s * The achievements of the Tipperary team in the 1960s * Cork's three in a row in the late 1970s * The Galway revival in the 1980s. * The memorable smash-and-grab raid by Offaly in 1994 when Limerick had all but won the championship * Clare and Loughnane in the late 1990s * The big three: Cork, Tipperary and Kilkenny after 2000 * Kilkenny's three in a row in 2008.

There is nostalgia and excitement in these pages for every lover of the national game.
