€2,000 for 15 groups in the county

€30,000 of funding has been granted for 15 men's sheds in Co. Kildare.

Each group will receive €2,000.

Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, has today announced funding of €800,000 to support Men’s Sheds.

Over 400 Men’s Sheds nationwide have been awarded funding, to assist them with running costs such as electricity or insurance bills.

Welcoming the announcement Senator Fiona O’Loughlin said, “The initiative will see grants of €2,000 provided to over 400 Men’s Sheds nationwide, including 15 in Kildare to assist them with running costs such as electricity or insurance bills.”

“Mens sheds so huge work in our local communities and provide a great social outlet and training opportunities for so many people."

Senator O'Loughlin added, “I am delighted to see funding being made available to support mens sheds. They help tackle isolation and provide a welcoming and comfortable space for men to come together and socialise.”
