Fintan's Fifteen Ireland's Worst Hurling Team Wants You! by Alan Nolan

Introducing the first illustrated novel about hurling! Something has to be done...Ray is getting tired of losing every match he plays with his team, the Ballybreen Terriers. Not only are they constantly at the bottom of the league, they have to face the gloating of rival Dennis `Dirty Den' Conway. Before they become the laughing stock, Ray persuades Fintan Heffernan, ex-star player of U10's to leave his early retirement and computer games to help bring `Dirty Den' down and lead the Ballybreen Terriers to the victory they deserve.
