Chiselled from Ash is a story of love and honour.It’s the story of Len Gaynor’s great love for the game of hurling, and how he has honoured the great game his whole life.
Len Gaynor won it all with Tipperary, finishing his career with three All-Ireland hurling titles, four Munster titles and two National League titles in the 1960s and 70s. But the flamboyant wing back also wanted to give back at the end of his career.
The Kilruane MacDonaghs clubman - and winner of three county titles - quickly proved himself to be one of the smartest and most ambitious coaches in the game.At club level he strived to teach and help the next generation, and led his own Kilruane and neighbouring clubs to success – and at county level through the 1990s Len Gaynor managed Tipperary and Clare on the biggest stages in the game.
Chiselled from Ash is the story of one man’s great love for a great game that has remained undimmed over seven decades.
