About us

A native of Wexford, Paul has a wealth of experience in the hurl making business. Maher Handmade Hurls was originally founded in 1983, although the Maher's had been making hurls for years before that. It is both owned and run by Paul Maher. Paul's passion for woodwork and design is a direct result of exposure at an early age from his father who also handcrafted hurls. This is more than just a job for Paul; it's a way of life. His workshop is filled with a range of machines that he uses to flatten, straighten and shape timber, to uniquely create each hurl. He has made hurls for some of Ireland's most influential GAA players and is much sought after by many clubs around Ireland and beyond. For Paul, the relationship with each client is key to success which is reflected in his many long standing and loyal client connections. Maher Handmade Hurls has also featured in the media on numerous occasions.
