We meet every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10.30am to 2.00pm at Askea Business Park, O'Brien Road, Carlow.
The first Men’s Shed in Carlow was formally established in June 2011 under the Carlow Men’s Health Project (CMHP). The CMHP was a group comprising of St. Catherine's Community Services Centre, Carlow County Development Partnership, Men’s Development Network, RAPID, HSE, Carlow Local Sports Partnership, Waterford IT and Carlow IT that focused on improving men’s health in Co. Carlow. The CMHP also secured funding to enable the future development of the shed. With these supports in place a co-ordinator for the Carlow Men’s Shed was appointed in June of 2011 for 10 hours/week and the Men’s Shed was officially launched during National Men’s Health Week (13th – 19th June). The CMHP sourced a central venue at the Old Parish Centre for Carlow Men's Shed from Society of St Vincent De Paul- Carlow Branch. The Men’s Shed began on Tuesday June 21st, opening one day a week, and has steadily grown to its present status, engaging and supporting men 3 days a week.
