Steeped in history, abuzz with culture, Limerick is a county proud of its past and facing the future. Few counties in Ireland have such a finely honed sense of regional and civic pride. It is not entirely surprising therefore that the Limerick leg of the Irish Men’s Sheds Association’s (IMSA) showcase tour was the best-attended to date.

Limerick enjoys one of the highest sheds-per-head of population ratios of any geographical unit in the world. Almost 150 members, representing 22 sheds, attended the meeting in the stunning surrounds of the Fitzgerald Woodlands House Hotel in scenic Adare.
