The Blackrock Community Men’s Shed was established last Autumn and we became members of the Irish Men’s Shed Association. We meet once a week for an afternoon in the main hall at Urban Junction in Blackrock.
The Shed is a supportive and healthy environment where men can meet to work on DIY, restoration and artwork projects together and share in a cuppa and chat. We visit other Sheds occasionally and have guest speakers in too. It is open to all men of various abilities and backgrounds. The group was set up by Allan who recently retired and looks after the DIY at Urban Junction. There are 12 men coming along so far with room to expand. Sharing a multi-use room, we are quite restricted space and storage-wise so are currently searching for an alternative premises to rent close by (ideally somewhere with an area of ground to cultivate as a community garden so we will be able to offer more to the community!) Please get in touch if you would like to hear more about the Shed. Drop in on a Thursday afternoon or call Allan on 086 8543985.
