Men’s sheds are non-profit local organisations that provide a space for social interaction and craftwork. The movement originated in Australia in the 1980s with the aim of improving the health and wellbeing of older men. The first of Clare’s sheds was formed in Ennis in 2013. A large area has now been developed comprising an orchard and Hare’s Corner allowing members do their bit for biodiversity.

Pat Flynn chatted with Conn Corry, coordinator of outside activities at Ennis Men’s Shed.
