Pic: OUCH! Hurler impales hand on team mates helmet during game
Hurling is a dangerous sport and injuries are common but you are unlikely to have seen something like this before.
During the Munster Intermediate club championship encounter between Tipperary champions Clonakenny and Newcestown of Cork, the midfield pairing for the Tipp side came together awkwardly and the result was unexpected... and painful.
Clonakenny were beaten by a point but the bad news didn't end there as the photo below proves. Ouch.
