OUR HISTORY
Ingrained with tradition

Torpey has built its traditions in the sport of hurling through grassroots development and involvement in the community. Hurling is a sport of the community with the key focus of every club being sustainable for the future. Torpey is built on the same principles with a major focus on learning from the past and planning for the future. Torpey is an established business since 1981 and is now in its’ third generation of master craftsmen.

Learning and development from the past has led Torpey to become successful in the current day and into the future. John Torpey was heavily involved with people on a personal level which helped him to understand people. This tradition is forefront in Torpey’s development of new products and innovations where the people of the community have a central involvement in their final product choice.
