Olde Shillelagh Stickmakers

Olde Shillelagh Stickmakers

Olde Shillelagh Stickmakers is a family business which thrives in the small village of Shillelagh, in the heart of Ireland. Nestled in a valley in the mountainous county of Wicklow, Shillelagh is a pure example of Irish architecture and living.

Liam O Caidhla has been making sticks for years. The skill has been in Liam's family since before the time of his great-grandfather Denis and has been passed down through the generations. Liam works with his own family, crafting these sticks and keeping the tradition alive.

The craft of making perfectly balanced walking and fighting sticks has changed little over the ages other than upgrading some of our finishing techniques to allow the sticks to handle hotter climates and modern centrally heated homes. The art of making Shillelaghs is a series of processes taking from 2-5 years, from the moment a stick is cut to the moment its lucky owner lays eyes upon it.

Here is a small article and podcast about our establishment.
