Peter and Patrice have a son J.J. and a daughter Katie and they hope one day that they will continue the Hurley making tradition.
Peter is a qualified Carpenter/Joiner and had 10 years’ experience in the trade before starting to make Hurleys.
His dream throughout his childhood was to become a Hurley maker, and in 2006 he took the plunge and started his own Hurley making business. He spent a year training with well renowned Hurley maker Neddy Gough (R.I.P.), during this time Neddy showed him the craft of Hurley making to a fine art.
He now has accomplished his dream, as he has a thriving Hurley making business. It is a family run business, his wife Patrice looks after all the sales and orders. His brother Brian looks after the admin and website sales. His Dad, Pierie, is always around to have a chat to the customers who visit the workshop. This allows Peter the freedom to concentrate on making a top-quality Hurley.
The business is 100% Irish and family operated. We are a small team who rely on our valued customers. An excellent customer service is very important to all of us here and the top-quality Hurley is at the centre of this.
