A tour of an NFL stadium was the perfect time for Jackie Tyrrell to show off his free-taking skills

The Kilkenny hurler surely impressed Brian Cody with this accuracy.

EVEN WHEN HE’S on his holidays, Jackie Tyrrell is still thinking about hurling. While on a tour of the San Francisco 49ers stadium, the eight-time All-Ireland winner decided to practice his free-taking.

TJ Reid is very accurate so maybe Tyrrell will have to settle for the number two role.


What were the rest of the people on the tour thinking when Tyrrell whipped out the hurley and belted it over the bar? Security must be lax at Levi’s Stadium.
