  Portadown, Co. Armagh, N. Ireland
     They must act as a clearing house as they first sent me a Setanta, then a Caman.  Both fine hurls.
 
  Co. Cork, R. Ireland
     I'm keen to order one of theirs and they do have 37" hurleys for sale though they're not on the website.  They've related to me that there is a trend for players to use smaller hurleys today.  I've owned a McAuliffe and it's great.  Finally a toe I won't destroy!
 
 Indiana, USA
     3rd hurley.  37" of ash wonder just came in the mail.  FINE finish, but worried about it's weight.  I'll see if I can adapt...  I did.  The body adapts if you push it.
 
 Belfast, Co. Antrim, N. Ireland
     My 2nd hurley.  Fantastic stick, 36" nice size bas.  Sorry I broke it.  Able to repair it twice, but let it die gracefully afterward.
 
 Ballymena, Co. Antrim, N. Ireland
     Quite a buz about this company with their high customizablity (pimp your hurl).  Can't wait to try one.
 
Belfast, Co. Antrim, N. Ireland
     My first hurley.  I was worried about the Setanta's small bas, but it's still a fine one.  It was a bit small for me though, 34", but not their fault.  They sent what I asked for.  Turned out to be nice and quick.  Don't let your kid dig with it...
 
  BelVoir, Co. Clare, R. Ireland
Heard some nice things about these Clare hurls...
 
  Forth Mountan, Co. Wexford, R. Ireland
The heavy cut of Wexford-style hurls of the American Hurling Co. survive well in the Florida heat.  L'Ash Go Leor does not disappoint either.  "Big League" quality grain in their ash.
