It’s common knowledge that the Irish game of Hurling is “a bit” rough but this video shows that they know how to take the rough side like a man.
Hurler of the year nominee Paudie Maher suffered a rare setback in 2016. But his reputation as a hurling hard man were done little harm.
Not because of any frightening hits that were dispensed but rather because of his shoulder shrugging response to having a hurl broken across the side of his head.
Not many sports you would see that in these days.
