Men in Ireland face a number of challenges around poor mental and physical health, suicide and the loss of community cohesion. Men’s Sheds address all of these issues by addressing their root cause: social isolation.

Each Men’s Shed is a community space where men of all ages and backgrounds can come together, share skills, make new friends and connect with others in their locality.

As a nationwide, member-focused, grassroots community initiative, the Irish Men’s Sheds Association has the capacity to transform the lives of all those who come into contact with it; sometimes subtly, sometimes in a more profound way

"Solving big problems takes time, passion and energy will bring you so far but you need a plan. When you feel like giving up always think about why you started."
