The book was launched by Brian Cody who paid tribute to Henry for all his achievements and committment to Kilkenny Hurling over a long playing career. Brendan Hennessy hosted proceedings and the panel discussion with J J Delaney, Tommy Walsh, Eamonn Corcoran(Tipperary) and Ken Mc Grath(Waterford) being the highlight for many.
Henry was a guest on the Late Late Show on Friday night and signed books in Easons in Dublin on Saturday. He will be signing again in The Kilkenny Book Centre High Street on Saturday 3rd of October from 12 noon.
