The concept behind Men's Shed is to provide a safe, friendly and open environment where men can meet and engage in positive, productive experiences that will, in turn, enhance their overall health and well-being.  Men. by nature, are task orientated and enjoy engaging in activities together.  Men's Sheds can form the basis for companionship and friendship and all are welcome to come along for a cuppa and a friendly chat with other men from the area.   Men's Shed's are open to all men over 18 years of age and there is no upper limit. 

Men's Shed group have been generously supported by the communities and businesses in other towns and the group is actively seeking support within Ballyhaunis.

The Ballyhaunis Group is now up and running and the association is appealing for donations of equipment and materials, as well as furniture and other items that would be of use to the group e.g. tools, equipment, pallets, machinery, paint, wood, household items, books etc.

All donations can be dropped off at the group's new premises which is located behind the Friary in Ballyhaunis and are open Mon-Fri from 10.00am to 2pm.

All are welcome and bring a friend.
