Captains of the Premier Ship (Book)

Noel Dundon

Tipperary, the Premier County, has certainly played its part in the creation, development and enhancement of the game of hurling. The men who led their twenty-six All-Ireland title winning teams have gone down in legend as true Captains of the Premier Ship.

From Thurles' Jim Stapleton in 1887 - Tipperary's first - to Mullinahone's Eoin Kelly in 2010 - Tipperary's winning senior hurling captains - a compelling tale of triumph and achievement, a unique insight into the psyche of winners.

For Tipperary people, it is a celebration of success and a reminder of just why the title 'Premier County' was bestowed upon their kin.
