Taghmon Men’s Shed

What is the Men’s Shed?

The Community Men’s Shed is an updated version of the shed in the backyard. If you looked inside one you could see anything from wood turning and wood carving to welding. You might also see both young and older men learning new skills from each other and maybe also learning something about life from the men they are working with.

 “Men don’t talk face to face; they talk shoulder to shoulder”

The Taghmon Men’s Shed Boat Building Project has been funded and supported by Wexford County Council as part of their “Artist in the Community Scheme”.   This project is a collaboration between Taghmon Men’s Shed and the Artist Andi McGarry from Kilmore. 

The currach is made from wood and canvas and builds on the wood-working skills that have been developed by Taghmon Men’s Shed through previous projects and workshops.  Materials for the currach were sourced, the frame constructed, the canvas “skin” covered and painted and eventually the currach was sailed on the River Slaney.  The complete boat building process has been documented by film and music.

Many thanks to all those who contributed towards the funding of the materials for the boat building project.
