Men’s sheds  Are a place that men of all ages and creeds, can come together with work and play to improve and share a common well-being.It is well known that most men are reluctant to just TALK! It is found that honest men taking part in communal work and recreation, do relax a little and chat in an informal, warm, friendly environment.  The amazing Men’s Shed Movement started in Australia approximately twelve years ago and rapidly spread wold wide, appearing in Ireland about five years ago.It is noted that in locals where men’s sheds are present and operating with strength, the depression and suicidal problems decrease dramatically. And a new brightness  in the whole community appears.Fortunately for the people of the Murroe and Boher areas. The Mulcair Men’s Shed is now newly formed and in operation  for us and all other parishes of the area. at the Abington Enterprise Center. By coincidence this is the center of the River Mulcair Tributary Region that we are in. It covers both East Co Limerick and North West Tipperary. That brings us the extra pride and strength to say “We are a Shed without borders.We are open most evenings and part of some days, although 8pm Wednesdays we always have a group social meeting. This is an open invitation to you. For more details, please check out our Facebook page Mulcair Men’s Shed or email or Conrad (061) 378322 083 1600845 or any of our members.

In addition to this the club will run a local draw also where all tickets bought for the National/Regional draw will be entered again for a super prize fund.

Welcome to the new Murroe Website

No comments

As you can see, we have had a much overdue facelift.  The old site has served Murroe for 7 years and needed to be drastacilly changed to allow for new technologies, especially social media and mobile devices.

The new site is completely responsive to all size of devices.  Phones, Tablets, Laptops and TV’s will all display the content correctly now and give a far richer experience.

Ongoing, the social media will be where we will post continuous updates for events going on in the village and this site will have pages for each of the current events going on.  No more searching around for multiple posts on the same subject.  Therefore, you should follow us on twitter here and facebook here for instant updates.

We hope you like the new website.  Feedback form is on the bottom of the main page!

Special thanks to NTES IT Support Services whom provided engineering, designers and hosting for Murroe for free.

The old site will be available for an undefined amount of time by clicking the link in the top right of the page.
