From the 1st January 2010, the following applies to all players at all levels up to and including Senior grade:
(a) In all Hurling Games and Hurling Practice Sessions it is mandatory for all players to
wear helmets with a facial guard.
(b) Helmets shall be approved for use on the basis of compliance with standards and tests
set out in IS:355 as determined by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI).
Currently the approved helmets are the Mycro, Marc and Azzurri.
I would also like to point out that the GAA Injury Scheme will only operate for hurling injuries if the injured player was wearing an approved helmet.
