Liam Hayes began to write the book last year just before the passing of Tony, however, his wife, sons and daughters have decided to finish the story. The book it entitled 110% because he always wanted players to put their bodies on the line and to get every percent out of their performance. That drive, and commitment saw Tony win two All-Ireland’s in a row from 1987 to 1988, however, it was Galway’s first All-Ireland in 2017 since, but sadly the former Galway centre back passed away a month before his beloved Galway lifted Liam McCarthy for the first time in 29 years.
