If you are referring to the Irish sport of Hurling which, like hockey, is a field game using a ball and stick, the the stick used is not bent. It is known as a hurley, or in the Irish language a camán. It starts narrow at the top and the broadens towards the end with a large surface at its end. See the image at the link below. The sticks used to play Field Hockey and Ice Hockey in Ireland are the same as anywhere else in the world.
