In Tipperary, The Local Development Companies and other community structures have supported the development of a number of Men’s Sheds around the county.
What is a Men’s Shed?
- A Men’s Shed is a dedicated, friendly and welcoming meeting place where men come together and undertake a variety of mutually agreed activities.
Men’s Sheds are open to all men regardless of age, background or ability. It is a place where you can share your skills and knowledge with others, learn new skills and develop your old skills.
- New members are always welcome and can be assured that there is something of interest for everyone as the men have ownership of their Shed and projects and decide their own program of events.
- An objective of Men’s Sheds is to enhance or maintain the well-being of the participating men.
The Irish Men’s Sheds Association was set up in January 2011 with the purpose of supporting the development and sustainability of Men’s Sheds on the Island of Ireland. See www.menssheds.ie for information and supports in relation to development of Mens Sheds.
