We certainly weren't expecting to stumble across this today. We shouldn't have such preconceived notions of a hurler's sense of style or their use of instagram, but surely nobody outside of Kilkenny would have expected Jackie Tyrrell to be such a fashionista and prolific poster to social media.

His instagram account has plenty of shots of him in a more familiar setting, ie as an O'Neills-clad, helmeted camán-wielder, but for every Sportsfile image of Tyrrell with his game face on, there's just as many of the 32-year-old decked out in the most up-to-date threads, or paying tribute to other leaders in the style stakes.

He's not quite at the Paul Galvin level of GAA style icon, but he's making a good fist of it so far and is surely the leading stickman when it comes to clobber.

Tyrrell in what we thought was his natural environment

1. There is nothing wrong with skinny jeans, but many people seem unable to associate them with hurlers. Those people need to cop themselves on, says Jackie

2. He is a cardigan enthusiast

3. And a bow tie enthusiast

4. These shirts, probably

5. The the whole 'doing up your top button' thing

6. He doesn't need colour photography (or correct spelling) to get his point across

7. He really does love his bow ties

8. These fine sturdy brogues

9. The aforementioned brogues and jeans in tandem

10. Taking stick for the Galvinesque cut of his shorts

11. He's not afraid to declare a #mancrush
