Men Sheds In Wicklow Share In €14,600 In Funding

Men’s Sheds organisations across Wicklow are to benefit from just over €14,500 in funding from the government.

The men’s shed community based organisations have grown in popularity across the country, providing men of all ages with a place where they can share their skills and connect with their communities through various  projects they work on.
Here in Wicklow the men’s sheds allocated funding are Baltinglass and Greystones which will each receive €1,400, Newtownmountkennedy and Newcastle 1,900 and Tinahely 1,300.
Rathnew is being given €2,200, with Roundwood €2,000, Shelton Abbey 1,500, and Wicklow €1700.
The funds will go directly to the Men’s Shed’s to allow each group to update their facilities by purchasing equipment or by carrying out minor works to improve their shed.
