A new TG4 documentary looks at the effects, both physical and mental, which injuries have on GAA players.
An Taobhlíne, part of the broadcaster's Tabú series, will air at 9:30pm on Wednesday, December 5th.
It will feature male and female players, both past and present.
According to the documentary's makers, Midas Productions:
One young hurler is just 17-years-old and over the course of filming received his second hip operation in the hope that he can return to the hurling pitch.
Another 18-year-old dual player decided to forego surgery to attend rehab for his persistent hip and groin problem.
Two sisters, both former formidable Dublin footballers, find themselves sidelined within two months of each other and can only watch from the sidelines as their team reach the Championship final.
It also features interviews with orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Patrick Carton, GAA welfare officer, Gearóid Devitt, and GAA physiotherapists.
