A special mention to the Men who make the time and effort to be part of this journey.

What is a mens shed

A ‘men’s shed’ is a community based project, where men can come together to learn, share skills and make long-lasting friendships together.

Members presently meet every Tuesday night for two hours. Our ambition is to have the shed open on a daily basis.

The programme varies from week to week but members enjoy a cup of tea, a game of cards, pool or a sing-song when no formal programme is arranged.​



Ballaghaderreen Men’s Shed provides different activities, We are into film making, photography, crafts, storytelling, music, online presentations, connecting with sheds on the International stage.

Carpentry, wood-turning and copper and metal work are some of the many skills practiced in the workshop.

The upstairs room is used for meetings, discussions, courses, computer work, pool, cards, conversation and general craic.

The shed is open to facilitate any member wishing to come in during the day to learn, teach or practice new skills.
