Hi All,

Mulcair Men’s Shed are having an Open Day event at our shed in Abington Enterprise Center, next Sunday 28th August from 2:00-6:00pm. Please come along and see our Shed and hear about the projects we are carrying out.

See the picture attached. These are Tactile Sensory Boards, which is the latest project that the men of Mulcair Men’s Shed are working on for special needs children. Come along to our Open Day and see them up close and personal.

ALL are welcome. So please bring along your family and friends.

Of course, we will have Music, a Barabecue, a MONSTER Raffle and some lucky dip prizes.

The Shed is located a half mile from Powers Pub, Abington, heading towards Annacotty.

We have some musicians lined up for the day, but if you know of any other session musicians that might like to come along and join the fun, they would be most welcome.

Best Regards.
Liam.

Gaelic Fields Book

Murroe native, Paul Carroll, has spent the past 7 years travelling the 32 counties of Ireland to photograph GAA landmarks and games in action. He has now launched a Kickstarter campaign to turn the work into a photography book (see: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gaelicfields/gaelic-fields). Joe.ie recently had a piece about this, which you can check out here: http://www.sportsjoe.ie/gaa/video-a-trip-through-the-32-counties-to-find-the-most-scenic-gaa-pitches-in-ireland/91769. We would like to wish himl the very best with his project. Don’t forget to come back to Murroe to sign a few copies, Paul!

Murroe-Boher had 3 competitors representing their Community and their County at the HSE Community Games National Festival in Athlone last weekend.

Katie Bartley was in the u10 Art competition, Rose Clancy was in the u14 50m Butterfly swimming & Peter Ashe was in the u8 25m Freestyle swimming.

Rose came 4th in her heat and just missed out on qualifying for the semi-finals.

Peter came 4th in the Plate/B Final. The U8s are divided into A & B competitions after the preliminary round. Separate A & B semis & finals then take place.

It was a great experience for all, even the parents and Rose, Katie and Peter were very proud to represent Murroe-Boher.

Well done to everyone.

Hi Men,

In advance of our Open Day on Sunday 28th August, we started a painting blitz last week. You can see in the attached photos that we got a lot done. The Kitchen and Gym are finished and are looking great. We also got a first coat on the workshop area.

So we are going for another painting blitz on Wednesday evening Wednesday 17th from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, so if you can spare an hour or two and have a painting roller and some spare paint (whatever colour) could you please come along and give us a hand?

Many hands make light work!!! 👐👐👐👐👐💡

We will have our weekly meeting then after the blitz to continue our plans for the Open Day and our stand at the Cappamore Show NEXT Weekend 😱 and of course to enjoy a cuppa ☕ and a few biccies 🍘🍘 while we have our Fireside Yarns.

So please come along and give us a hand.
