Flan named Clare Shedder of the Year

FLAN Hehir, of Ennis Mens’ Shed has been named Clare Shedder of the Year. To celebrate the work carried out within Men’s Sheds in County Clare, the Social Inclusion and Community Activation Programme (SICAP) programme within Clare Local Development Company developed the ‘Clare Shedder of the Year’ award. This was as a recognition to the work carried out in local Sheds within the county. Men’s Sheds were asked to nominate someone they believed fit the criteria of Clare Shedder of the Year.
Monica McKenna, Community Development Officer with Clare Local Development Company says, “A large number of nominations were received and after some deliberation Flan Hehir from Ennis Men’s Shed was found to be a worthy recipient. Flan joined Ennis Men’s Shed early 2014 and immediately understood the concept of Men’s Sheds and the benefits to community. He was chosen not only for the help and support he gives to his own shed but also the support he gives throughout the county. Flan received a trophy along with a voucher for his shed.
“Men’s Sheds not only contribute to the life and soul of many communities, they are also a place where men meet shoulder to shoulder, promoting well-being and reducing isolation. During lockdown, the Men’s Sheds have been missed right around the county. We are all looking forward to when the men can meet safely again,” she added.
