Swinford Men’s Shed Construct Christmas Crib.
Swinford Men’s shed was recently formed by local men from Swinford, Charlestown and the surrounding areas. Swinford men’s shed has recently completed their first project, the Christmas Crib opposite the Gateway Hotel on main street in Swinford. The materials were supplied by Swinford Tidy Towns and painting by Trease Hennigan. The figurines were made by John Darwell. Thanks to all the various people involved in any way with the construction of the Christmas crib. Thanks also to Mrs Rooney from Glebe house for the use of her garden and also to Haran scaffolding.
The Crib will be officially blessed and opened on Saturday the 6th of December at 4:30pm as part of the Christmas Lights switching on ceremony, taking place in Swinford. View the full Christmas festival programme here.
Swinford men’s shed is a coming together of men of different ages and social backgrounds. The aim of men’s sheds are to share life experiences, skills and beliefs in a positive and non-judgemental way for the betterment of themselves and society in general.
The next meeting of Swinford men’s shed will be held in the Gateway Hotel on Thursday 11th December at 7pm. All are welcome. We would greatly appreciate anyone who would like to donate power tools, hand tools or wood for construction projects, contact Ph. 087 9973050.
