During 2012/13, Thomastown G.A.A. Club’s hurling team created history by emerging from the County Kilkenny Junior Championship to subsequently take Leinster and All-Ireland Junior titles.
In a new book commissioned and written by the club, “The Drive for Five” follows the exploits of the team through the early rounds of the county championship, and continues as they ventured into the Leinster championship, then onto the sacred ground of Croke Park and ultimately, All-Ireland success.
