MEN’S sheds across Limerick received a welcome boost last week, with confirmation that they are to receive a total of €50,000 in Government funding.
The funding will see grants of €2,000 to help men’s sheds in the city and county with running costs, such as electricity or insurance bills.
The funds were announced by Minister for Rural and Community Development Heather Humphreys and have been welcomed locally.
The cash boost is part of an overall national fund of €800,000 to assist 400 men’s sheds nationwide with running costs.
Minister of State Niall Collins said that “men’s sheds provide a valuable service in our communities by offering a place for men to socialise and come together with friends”.
Limerick City Fine Gael TD Kieran O’Donnell also welcomed the announcement, saying that “men’s sheds are invaluable to our communities and this grant funding will aid them in continuing their great work across Limerick, in particular with rising energy costs”.
“I wish to commend our sheds for all they do in the city and in their towns and villages,” Deputy O’Donnell added.
