Video: This Laois teenager’s freestyle hurling skills are a delight to behold

We don’t know if the phrase ‘sexy hurling’ has ever been used before but if ever anything deserved it then this is it.

You may well have heard of Laois teenager James Keyes before. We featured him on the site last year when the freestyle hurling craze was at its height and indeed, you may well have seen the clip above as it has been doing the rounds in recent days, with Donal Óg Cusack amongst the many to sit up and take notice.

And rightly so too because although there is less than 30 seconds worth of footage here, every bit of it is gold, with skills the like of which would earn the highest of praise if pulled off by Henry Shefflin himself.

Pucking class.
