Are you interested in beautiful Hand Made Presentation Model Oars?

If you are, Garry O’Brien might be the man to help you out. Garry is a former rower with St. Patrick’s Rowing Club, Ringsend however from the following photographs you will see that pulling an oar is not Garry’s only talent. He can also make them. Garry’s oars are not really suitable for propelling a rowing boat but they certainly make beautiful Presentations, Awards, Trophies or lasting mementos of great rowing achievements.

In the following selection of photographs, Garry can make wonderful bespoke Presentation Model Oars, authentically hand painted in your club colours. Although Garry’s speciality is traditional East Coast Skiff Oars, he can also make model oars in other styles such as Macons, Cleavers and more traditional types of oars.

If you like Garry can also mount the model oars in stunning presentation frames alongside medals. Naturally, customers will be required to supply the medals.

Typical pricing:

  • A personalised handmade oar in Club Colours mounted in a 50cm x 23cm (20″ x 9″) frame with Medal is €60.00.
  • A set of four handmade oars in Club Colours mounted in a 70cm x 50cm (28″ x 20″) frame with Medal(s) is €120.00.

(Delivery will be extra)

As already stated, the customer must supply the medal(s).
