Established in 2013 by chair Eamon Cassells alongside other dedicated community members, Athboy Men’s Shed has grown from strength to strength with 20 dedicated members. Speaking on behalf of the shed, secretary Martin Mangan explains how it all began.

“There is a great outlet for women through ICA groups. A lot of men out in the country don’t have much to do. This idea came to life with the support of Meath County Council. We were very lucky to have been given a premises at the old convent. The room we got was an old woodwork room, so it is ideal.
