'I heard cracks as I was falling and knew then that there was something wrong'

Cork minor hurling captain Shane Kingston talks about his injury setback and receiving guidance from his father growing up.

CORK MINOR HURLING captain Shane Kingston had his season ended prematurely by injury back in May.

The dual star sustained a broken fibula and significant ligament damage during a challenge game against Clare, meaning he sat out the recent Munster minor hurling semi-final with Limerick. And he was missed as the Rebels lost out 1-14 to 0-14 as Peter Casey bagged a late goal.

There’s a rich history of hurling in the Kingston family as Shane’s father, former Cork selector Kieran, won an All-Ireland senior medal with the county in 1986.

In this video, produced by Electric Ireland, Douglas clubman reflects on his relationship with his dad and how he has been coping with the injury.
