PICS: This gruesome hurling injury is not for the faint-hearted

Don't look at this image if you want to eat anytime soon...

We thought we'd seen the worst GAA injury last month when we were presented with this absolutely horrible hand injury.


But now, we're not so sure anymore...

Johnny Clancy was playing for Tramore in a hurling game against Erin's Own in Waterford at the weekend when he suffered this horrific injury to his ear.

Johnny was striking a ball from midfield when his opponent attempted to hook him and ended up clipping his ear with the hurl.

The end result is rather graphic... you've been warned.

Thankfully, 14 hours and 20 stitches later, Johnny was well enough to make a trip to Limerick to watch the Munster Final... although he may wish he hadn't after the result that followed.

They must be cursed in Tramore at the moment, as another of their players, Mattie Thompson, suffered a broken thumb in a game the week before...

The bad news is, they've got championship coming up next weekend.
