A Wexford hurling star has claimed that his appearance in a porn movie has not affected his sporting career.
Greg Jacob, who was a member of the Wexford senior hurling panel, appeared in a video alongside busty British blonde porn star Tanya Tate.
Mr Jacob, from Enniscorthy, Co Wexford, said his decision to take part in the X-rated video Sex Tour Of Ireland did not lead to the decision to drop him from the senior panel onto the intermediate team.
Speaking this weekend, the hurler said: "It's all nonsense. You know how s**t goes around," he said. "I don't regret doing it."
The sports-mad Wexford player said he decided to make his once-off film debut following a dare from his friends.
"It was just a bit of fun. It was a dare from the lads," he said.
Porn actress Tanya Tate, who made an infamous appearance at the 40th birthday party of Kieron Ducie last year, travelled around Ireland on a motorbike to fans for "some naughty fun".
The men were told where to meet the British porn actress in a camper van to play out their roles for the camera.
Speaking this weekend Mr Jacob said that he was not ashamed of what he had done -- but added that he had only just gotten around to breaking the news to his parents in the past few days.
"I'm not ashamed of what I did, I just didn't want the family to know," he said.
"No one knows, only a few friends and that's the way I want to keep it."
