Donation of Shipping Container to local group

Roscrea Men's Shed

Roscrea Men’s Shed took delivery of a 20ft steel shipping container this week.

This container has been donated by Atlantis Cabins of Limerick (www.atlanticcabins.ie) For the past year, we have sought a small building to develop a new project for the younger men of Roscrea (18 to 30-year old’s), this project is a first for the area and we are glad to say has the full backing of the local Gardaí.

Two weeks ago, we sent out emails asking shipping container companies for a container at the lowest price possible. We got three email replies for 2,000+ and one phone call.

The Phone call was from Charlie of Atlantic Cabins, he was excited about what we do, having looked us up on Facebook. He wanted to donate a steel container and cover the cost of delivery. So, two weeks later we have a freshly painted secure and dry 20ft container.

This is a massive boost to our development idea, now we will be looking to companies and suppliers of mechanic’s tools and equipment, for further donations and support. We cannot thank Charlie and Atlantic Cabins enough for such a generous donation, we would hope that anyone thinking of purchasing a container as a shed or storage facility to use Atlantic Cabins of Limerick and the Midlands. We would also like to thank the Manager of Dunne’s Stores Roscrea for allowing us to load the container into our yard from their road way.
