WATCH: Hurl Broken Across Padraic Maher's Head - Doesn't Flinch In The Slightest
By Conor Neville Updated

A video which comes courtesy of The 2 Johnnies, the authors of the 2011 masterpiece 'Lar Outside', in which they try and woo a trio of Cork girls with the promise of a 'Lar Outside'. Essentially, this is translated as a pint in Lar Corbett's bar in Thurles.

Thurles Sarsfields, one of the favourites for the All-Ireland, were stopped by Clare champions Ballyea after extra-time in Ennis yesterday.

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.

It is at times like this when we think of Mick Lyons. In 1995, when Cubby Broccoli and the rest of them were casting around for a Meath man to play James Bond, they inexpicably overlooked Lyons. (Disappointingly, they went for a man who doesn't appear to have any trace of a Meath accent).

Mick's most legendary display of hardness occurred in the 1990 All-Ireland final when Cork full-forward Colm O'Neill hit him a box and Lyons simply put his hand to his face and strode away without so much as a plaintive glance at the referee. If the Bond producers didn't want that quality in a Bond then more fool them.

In terms of nonchalant reactions to incidents that would cause most men to wince and hit the deck, Mick Lyons's successor has been found and it is Padraic Maher.
