A prospective study of hurling injuries was conducted over the 8 months of one season on 74 players. These athletes averaged 4.30 ± 2.58 hours per week of training and 1.15 ± 0.21 hours per week of matches. Mean time of injury was 1.20 ± 2.53 days in the hospital, 20.34 ± 19.25 days off sport, and 13.34 ± 17.25 days of restricted activity. Together this injury time amounts to 14.3% of the season.
