The Men's Shed

Provide a venue for me to talk and connect with others while participating in a group and or individual projects.

To provide opportunities for friendship, social inclusion and socialising in a safe environment while at the same time the space, expertise and facilities for men to pursue hobbies, crafts and creativity and interest in heritage and culture.

To undertake projects acceptable to the group which are benefit to individuals, groups and the broader community, developing local citizenship or adding to community development for the benefit of the members and in turn the wider community.

Men will have the opportunity to meet and socialise with others in a ‘man to man’, ‘shoulder to shoulder environment. An atmosphere of doing things together will allow men to share their skills, to learn new skills and generally socialise and develop friendships in a friendly environment.

Members from all walks of life are welcome to join. The bond that unites them is that they are interested in doing something meaningful with their time.

Today the sun shone bright and warm on the hull of the first of two indigenous Fermanagh Cots built by our very own Belleek Men’s Shed. It isn’t just a boat, it’s a Belleek built boat, built by men of Belleek, a work of art and a labour of love. It’s a nod to the past, a strong handshake to the present and a gift to the future. It’s their contribution to their heritage, their culture, and everyone who has supported or been involved in its build should applaud, be as proud as they are, for tomorrow we build another....
