Men’s Ash Watch – Irish Handmade Wooden Watches

The common Ash is Ireland’s most common, tallest native tree. It is a deciduous tree and after it has been cut down, it is able to re-sprout and start growing again.

 

The wood is commonly known for making Hurleys, because of its strength and flexibility

The Ash tree was sacred to our ancestors. They believed the Ash held powers of protection
