Pic: Jaysus, look what the wind did to this set of GAA goalposts in Kerry

Even the most crooked of shooters would find it nearly impossible not to put it over the bar when faced with these goalposts.

Everyone that’s ever played Gaelic Football or hurling at any level will have taken part in a game where there was a major dispute over the awarding of a point and whether the ball or sliotar actually went over the bar or not; not all grounds are lucky enough to have Hawkeye after all.

Pity the poor umpires that would have to officiate at the GAA grounds in Valentia in Kerry, where the wind has had a pretty dramatic effect on the goalposts and bent them ridiculously out of shape to the extent that the goalposts appears as if their arms are flailing in a desperate cry for help.

 

While we’re sure the goalposts will be replaced before long, we imagine that it would be a great laugh to play a game with those goals still in place; if you couldn’t score a point into them, well, all hope is lost we're afraid.

Hat-tip to Stephen Lynott and Senan Lynch for sending this one our way
