Boyle Men’s Shed have been successful in their bid for funding towards computer equipment worth €2,362 under the Community Enhancement Programme. 

Senator Frank Feighan has welcomed total funding of almost €8,700 for four Men’s Sheds in County Roscommon. The funding has been announced by the Minister for Rural and Community Development, Michael Ring.

I echo the sentiments of Minister Ring who said Men’s Sheds offer a safe, comfortable and inclusive environment where men of all ages can share skills, work on meaningful projects and connect with their communities. Men’s sheds are renowned for their work on community projects, as well as their capacity to advance the health and wellbeing of individual members. Today’s funding allocations are richly deserved.

The Community Enhancement Programme (CEP) - Men’s Sheds offers funding to Men’s Sheds who are currently affiliated with the Irish Men’s Sheds Association.

The Department of Rural and Community Development provide the funding which will be administered through Roscommon LCDC and the Community and Enterprise section of Roscommon County Council.

There is €1,449 funding available per Men’s Shed in the County and funding will be allocated equally to all Men’s Sheds in the county that submit a valid application.

Other successful groups around the county include:

 • Ballaghaderreen: Rewiring of building, €2,992 
 • Ballyleague: the purchase of a cultivator, €1,671 
 • Castlerea: Water harvesting system for garden, tools, eve-runs and floor boards €1,671
