Silver Hurley Necklace
This silver pendant is based on the Irish hurley.
Ireland's national game, hurling is arguably the fastest field sport in the world and quite possibly the oldest. It is played with sticks called hurleys, a ball known as a sliotar, and by two teams of 15 who play on a large pitch with goals at either end.
The most famous early account of hurling is found in the Tain Bo Cuailgne, which describes the exploits of the Ulster hero Cú Chullainn. Hurling is mentioned a number of times in the text, most notably when the young hero, then known as Setanta, uses a hurley and sliotar to kill a vicious hound. It has been convincingly argued that this story’s origins lie in the Celtic Iron Age.
The hurley pendant is fashioned out of sterling silver and comes complete with an 18" silver chain. A uniquely Irish piece of jewellery this item ships worldwide.
