This year’s Tallaght based UEL and Niko Bathrooms are supporting the Men’s Sheds Association by raising awareness for the cause by creating a Men’s Shed Football Fantasy League where the monthly winning shed gets a donation of €100, the overall Men’s Shed winner gets a €2000 donation. UEL and Niko Bathrooms will also donate plumbing and heating materials to the sheds that require that type of materials through their activities and urge all their staff and customers to have a look at the Men’s Shed Ireland movement today and be there for the men’s sheds, like they’ve been there for countless communities across Ireland.
About Men’s Shed: The Irish Men’s Sheds Association was formed in 2011. It is an all island body with members across the 32 counties. Having originally started in Australia which inspired their Irish counterparts to begin their own movement. The first shed in Ireland appeared in Tipperary in 2009. Following the formation of the first shed in Ireland, the shed movement began to grow rapidly, with there now being over 450 sheds registered with the Irish Men’s Sheds Association and at least 12,000 men visiting a shed every week.
“Our mission at the IMSA is to support the development of the burgeoning men’s sheds movement in Ireland. As a grassroots organisation, we believe strongly in the autonomy of each individual shed, as we strive for a future in which all men have the opportunity to maintain and improve their well-being on their own terms and within their own communities.”
