Hurl maker Galway - 2018

Hi,

I know there are a few previous threads anbout hurl makers in Galway, but some of them are years old and looking for a fresh 2018 perspective.

Who makes a good hurl these days?

Makes a nice hurl. Cannings always seem to split up the middle. There's another lad on the Ballinasloe side of Loughrea on the old N6. Don't know his name though.

Here he is....https://www.google.ie/maps/@53.20799...=en&authuser=0

Yes.
There's a TJ Larkin in Killimor. I had forgotten about him. - http://www.larkinhurls.com/
I found out since that the guy I linked to on Google maps earlier is also Larkin.
Philip Larkin - https://www.irelandlookup.com/399104...Larkin_Philip/

I have heard of Larkin hurls alright and that they are relatively popular.

Which Larkin is the most reputable ?

Wouldn't have a clue. I never bought from either but I'm sure both would be reputable.

Hi,
Which one would. Be closest to Claregalway please? I'd like to take some photos if they'd allow it.

I took a few in Kilkenny years ago-- http://www.photoblog.ie/wicked-game/

Cheers,
Pa

The lad in Ardrahan posted above would probably be closest.
