Hegarty: ‘There is a lot more to life outside of hurling”

In association with Bord Gais Energy. With six Munster and five All Ireland medals to his name, Gearóid Hegarty’s appetite for success has no sign of abating.

“The enjoyment for us is so so important. You have your couple of days, and then you are looking forward to going back training. After a day or two you are thinking ‘I can’t wait to go back training again’, meeting the lads and preparing for the next day.

“That is how the year has flown so fast. You are just in that zone constantly when you are constantly trying to get better and enjoying yourself.”

Watch the full interview here:

The St Patricks clubman who turns 30 later this year is full aware and appreciative of the success this Limerick group has enjoyed since 2018.

“The last few years have been so enjoyable, none more so than this year. This year has been, again, another brilliant year for us.

“We have so many great memories. After the Munster final again this year, we had a couple of great days enjoying ourselves. If you don’t enjoy it, what are we doing here?

Hegarty who admits his form is much improved since last year says that covid helped put perspective on priorities and instilled an understanding that there is more to life than intercounty hurling.

“I think Covid was a massive thing in terms of seeing the bigger picture. There is a lot more to life outside of hurling, and that is something that I have got better at in the last number of years.

“Too much of my time was spent thinking about hurling, even when I wasn’t at training. Everything was geared towards hurling.

“As you get older, life I suppose gets in the way. Hurling is obviously still so so so important to me, but there is a lot of other things that take your mind off hurling in a good way.

“I have got older. You grow up and you realise it is not the most important thing in the world. There is a lot more to life than obsessing about hurling 24/7.
