In the heart of Mayo, Ballina Men’s Shed radiates the essence of community spirit. Founded in 2012 and now in it’s fifth year, the Ballina Men’s Shed was founded after a group of men were inspired by the successes of other sheds across the country.

“We are a thriving little club and there is a great sense of camaraderie among all of our members. There is a positive atmosphere and we all work together,” says Ivan Beattie, chair and co-founder of the shed.
