The sight of some naked hurlers on Curracloe beach last week raised a few eyebrows, however the players were not professionals but members of the Irish Naturist Association.
Cllr George Lawlor had asked on social media for information about the naked players seen on the beach and in the Raven wood on Friday (January 22), and received a fast response from the association, complete with a video of the get-together in what was referred to as a 'Naturist January Challenge'.
'The mystery of the naked hurlers has been solved! It appears it was actually a nude hiking event organised by the Irish Naturist Association,' said George.
'So there you go. The facts laid bare!'
