What is a Men’s Shed?

What is a Men’s Shed?

A Men’s Shed is a dedicated, friendly and welcoming meeting place where men come together and undertake a variety of mutually agreed activities. Men’s Sheds are open to all men regardless of age, background or ability. It is a place where you can share your skills and knowledge with others, learn new skills and develop your old skills. New members are always welcome and can be assured that there is something of interest for everyone as the men have ownership of their Shed and projects and decide their own program of events. An objective of Men’s Sheds is to enhance or maintain the well-being of the participating men. Cashel Men’s Shed meets every Thursday from 12-2 in Spafield Family Resource Centre, new members are always welcome. For more information please contact Deirdre O’Connor, Community Outreach Worker, or 062 63622.

Ethnic Food Day

St John the Baptist Boys National School are involved with several projects at the moment which are teaching the boys about the wider world around them: Comenius Partnership, Blue Star Project, Comenius Assistantship, Irish Aid Awards and principal, Mr Ryan will travel to India this summer. The school held an ethnic food day to raise awareness of food in other countries and help raise some money for good causes. This special day took place on Thursday 18 April. Our Comenius assistant Can Emre cooked some lovely Turkish food for the boys before he returns home on April 25th. The day was a great success and enabled the children to experience many different food. Thanks to all the parents/volunteers who cooked and served food from the many countries that are represented in our school. The day was a great learning experience for the whole school community.
