For most people growing up in Ireland hurling is a game you take for granted and never truly realise just how fucking nuts it is.

Hardly any protective gear and a 98% chance you'll be whacked with either a wooden stick or a solid white ball makes this one of the most intense games to not only play, but watch as well.

And with Sky Sports recently starting to broadcast the games on its UK channels, Brits are being introduced to this classic Irish sport - and their minds are blown.
