Time Honoured Tradition

Each hurley is made using spokeshaves before being sanded down. The use of spokeshaves allows us to handcraft each hurl to meet the specific needs of our customers, allows us flexibility in terms of adjusting the weight of each hurl, the thickness of the heel, and the thickness of the handle.

All hurleys are made using carefully selected ash purchased from local suppliers.


Hurleys will be handmade and dispatched within 15 working days from receipt of your order. Typical postage time in Ireland is 1-2 days.


You may return any item within 14 days in its original condition for a refund or replacement.
