A small Irish manufacturer has been providing quality hurleys since 2012. A hurley is a wooden stick used in the renowned Irish sports of hurling and camogie. It measures between 45 and 96 cm long with a flattened, curved base at the end. The curved base provides the striking surface for the leather sliotar ball and a hurler will expect to use several hurleys over the course of the hurling season. The hurleys often break if two players collide in the course of a game,
