Na Fianna Men's Shed Allenwood

A group of men came together a few years ago and with the co-operation of ACDAL and Allen Area CEP formed a Men's Shed. The group has grown to 25 members and opened their new shed this year.

A men's shed is a community-based organisation open to all men, regardless of age or background. Men's sheds are grassroots, member focused spaces which offer men a pressure free environment in which to share skills, make new friends and connect with their communities. We work on different projects for the benefit of our community.

We meet on Tuesday and Thursday from 10.00am to 1:00pm or as required.
