Drop in to Callan's new Mens Shed

Drop in to Callan's new Mens Shed

It was with great excitement the men of Droichead Family Resource Centre Men’s Shed Project awaited the arrival of their 'new' Porto cabin which is to become their home.

On Friday last, the long wait was finally over and the Porto cabin arrived in their new premises on West Street in Callan.

Thanks to Mr John Maher of Duggan Bros. in Templemore who generously donated and paid for the transportation of the Porto cabin from Templemore to Callan; David Baker the lorry driver who was escorted by two volunteers Peter O’Brian and Malachy Clancy from Templemore to Callan.

The Resource Centre would also like to thank Mr John Shaughnessy of Clancy’s in Fethard who generously provided the eighty tonne crane used to unload the 40 x 12 foot cabin off the lorry. The cabin is in-need of renovation and this will be the first of many interesting and perhaps challenging projects for the men’s shed members.

The Men’s Shed group meet on Thursdays from 2.30pm to 4.30pm and to help in this restoration just come along or contact Droichead Family Resource Centre, West Street, Callan on 056-7755660 Ext 1.
