Video: Slightly piss-takey, but still impressive hurling freestyle video from Limerick
It’s a little bit more unconventional than your average hurling freestyle video, but this guy’s got skills and he’s quite the showman as well.
A lot of skilful hurlers have got the chance to show off their skills to the wider world of late thanks to the freestyle competition being run by the GAA, inviting talented stick merchants to film their skills in an effort to win a trip to the All-Ireland hurling final and a place on the All-Star trip to China later this year.
We’ve featured some of the very impressive entries on the site in recent weeks but we’ve not come across anything like the effort above from Cian Lynch from Patrickswell in Limerick.
Lynch can certainly handle himself with a hurley but it is arguably his showmanship skills which are more impressive, illustrated with a little dance for the camera and while doing a few push-ups when he should really have had his trousers pulled up a little further.
Arguably there have been more skilful entries than this but not any that have made us laugh quite as much so if there’s a prize for the most alternative entry then Cian should win hands down.
Hat-tip to Alan Murray for sending this one into us
