Portglenone Men’s Shed Visit to Monaghan Men’s Hub

On 3rd of October 2013 it was the official opening of the Monaghan Men’s Hub, which is part of the Men’s Shed Movement.  The Hub was opened by Monaghan’s own Ardal O’Hanlon (Father Ted). It was a great day, despite the rain, with a packed venue.  The men had a chance to show off their new home which was refurbished by the men in the project. This also gave them a chance to display some of the items that the group made, such as furniture, bird houses, pens, and garden furniture.  There are approximately 100 men currently involved in the Monaghan Hub, which is quite impressive and shows the need for such projects.  We would like to acknowledge Caroline Flanagan, for all of her efforts in building up the Hub.  We would like to congratulate them on the success of their project and wish them nothing but the best for the future.

Click here see some photo’s from the day.

Also, we are looking for volunteers to help paint and decorate the new shed to help get it ready. We also will be building work tables and shelves for the unit.  If anyone has left over or paint that is unwanted, they can donate it to us to be used on future projects.
