With the temporary closure of men’s sheds across Ireland, some sheds have moved online to find new and innovative ways to interact and connect with one another.

One such shed is the Naas Community Men’s Shed, based in Co Kildare. Norman Farragher, chair of the shed, explains that the men have set up two WhatsApp groups: “We have a WhatsApp group, there’s 52 members out of the 60 involved in one. We also have a ‘musical WhatsApp group, to share music sessions with all members in both groups.”
