Tinahely Men’s Shed located in Co Wicklow is our Shed of the Week, and happens to be a great example of the ethos of “through giving we receive”. Bruce Copeland, a member of the group gives us the details of their shed and the many aspects of the contributions made to their community.

Three years ago, nine men came together to form a Men’s Shed in the town of Tinahely, Co Wicklow. With the use of their own money and the kind donation of a derelict house on Kelly’s Hill by the local County Council they created a workshop for their members. Bruce told Irish Country Living: “We had a keen interest in helping our local community and thought a Men’s Shed would be a great idea as it represents an unpolitical, positive and constructive community effort.”
