    Philip Larkin is based in Moyleen, Loughrea which is just out on the old Dublin Road before the turn for Portumna. He charges €25 a stick. His hurls are not the usual Galway style and have a square bas with a curved heel.

    Paddy O'Dea in Ardrahan is still making hurls and he never stopped either. He still makes the best hurl in Galway and probably Ireland. He also charges €25 a stick.

    Tom Joe Larkin who is a brother of Philip also makes hurls in Killimor. His hurls are also excellent and he has changed the shape of his bas and made it wider. TJ's hurls are €22 each.

    All three men are very hospitable and will help with any small details.

    a good idea would be a hurley makers show. Maybe on all ireland weekend, or league final weekend where each maker could have a stand and showcase what they have for people to buy and get phone numbers and stuff...


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 718 ✭✭✭thirdmantackle


    A shop in Croke Park on match days. Along the gallery where the fast food outlets are
    selling all makers of hurleys, helmets and gloves.

    It would do a roaring trade.

    I have always wondered what people think are the best hurls. I have always liked Philip Larkins from Galway but just wanted to hear hurls what other people like.

    Wouldn't no anything about these 'HURLS'.

    Are they like 'HURLEYS' by any chance?


  • Registered Users Posts: 842 ✭✭✭ConTheCat


    Gone mad into O' Connor hurleys, there worth the delivery charge if im not arsed driving down! :D

    *rolls eyes*.... city folk. It's a hurl.

    O'Connor hurleys are made of white chocolate, they break as easy. Liam Walsh in Lisgoold is the best.

    What part of 'Mountainlad' led you to say city folk? :L

    Note the highlighted word there as well. Your words not mine.

    end of argument,its a HURLEY as stated in the rules


  • Registered Users Posts: 12 lefthanded


    Tom Murphy and Noel Wall hurleys in south Kilkenny are good weight and don't break easily. No matter what hurley you get, having a band looses strength in the boss. TJ Reids can be like a board and Stars are good weight but are fairly brittle

    Tipperary half back Padraic Maher is now involved in making hurleys. Not sure what they're like personally but he's receiving acclaim over on Twitter.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,056 ✭✭✭tvercetti


    I find Flanagans from Waterford the nicest hurley personally, but I play with a Cultec.

    That's interesting to hear that he is making hurleys. A lot of players seem to be getting involved these days. Although AFAIK, he doesn't use his own hurleys in matches!

    Not sure if he's involved with the hands on aspect but he's certainly making something out of it. Maybe he feels compelled to stick to a certain types in matches?

    My father reckons the Randall is a lovely hurl. Handle like a 'broomstick' or so he says though the hurls he used to buy me were sort of a bastardized O' Connor, they look terrible (to some people) and they're usually big heavy unwieldy yokes, or he used to make some of his own. If you have a light, whippety, sturdy hurl though IMO you can't go wrong. It shouldn't take any effort to lift it at all.
