Dowling Hurleys



The traditional tools and techniques of handcrafting hurls has been passed down through three generations to Brian.  He served his apprenticeship with his father while still at school and joined the family run business full-time in the 1980’s.  The name Dowling is now synonymous with hurl making in the east coast for the quality and attention to detail given to each hurl produced.  Brian supplies inter-county players from Kilkenny,Tipperary and Dublinwith his hurls.
