Liverpool Hurling club poster, c.1900.
Take a serious look at the shape of the Hurley sticks and how they have changed and evolved over the years! Liverpool has been emigrated to by the Irish since 1798. However, it was after the Famine that saw approx 280,000 people enter Liverpool. About 100,000 moved on. So, with that strong Irish background it was no wonder that there would be an attempt by the Irish Diaspora to get together to play the national sports. Sefton Park in Liverpool has always been a great home for a Gaelic games and is based in Greenbank. Gaelic games are gaining popularity worldwide and sure why not, hurling is the fastest field sport in the world!
We are delighted to present these fascinating rarities of old Ireland for you to own. We look forward to helping you create your own collection that can be treasured and admired by your family for many generations to come!
