In the south of County Kilkenny, on the Waterford, Tipperary borders where GAA is the life blood of the community, Falconer Hurleys is a long established family run business.
Originally founded by Sonny Falconer in 1960 hand made hurleys have been produced and sold from the workshop beside the family home for over 50 years. Falconer Hurleys is now run by Aidan the second generation of the Falconer family.
As his family grew up his son Aidan began as an apprentice at Sonny’s side and together the developed the Falconer Hurleys into both a nationwide and international business that is now
ranked one of the top hurley making companies in Ireland.
Ash trees were sourced locally and Sonny would craft hurleys at the request of individual players. This continues with Aidan we fell our own ash to ensure our customers receive the best quality timber. A speciality of Falconer Hurley’s is handcrafting individual hurleys to meet customers’ requirements.
We are now supplying hurleys to GAA Clubs, to schools, colleges and sports shops both nationwide and internationally. A range of different styles of hurleys are available and we also specialise in tailor made hurleys for individual players.
