Blackthorn stick

I seem to be having no luck with the internet these days, so can anyone recommend a seller, preferably in the British Isles of quality Irish blackthorn sticks?


My father uses one (was part of his uniform) and I would quite like one myself to assist in longer walks (Twice suffered a complete Achilles rupture, so have been taking it easy for a year or two)

I am after the proper, knobbly cudgel headed type.

Look no further than the Emerald Isle!
My uncle brought a bunch of blackthorns with him from Ireland, a couple of which I now have at home. They're great.

I was going to suggest Europe but you beat me with this more specific answer.

Go on Conne, just for fun, lets assume I was aware that the Emerald Isle was perhaps the best place. Narrow it down a bit for me mate?
