Men’s Shed collection of stories
MEN’S SHED members from across county Wexford have been working on a book over the last few months which will be launched this coming Friday.
The collection of short stories called ‘Stories from the Shed’ will be launched by the Mayor of Wexford, Cllr Tony Dempsey, in Wexford library at 2 p.m. on Friday, September 14.
The stories in the book touch on a wide range of topics and will take readers from trips to strawberry fields and the Passage East car ferry to the bogs of Offaly and Ballinaboola.
Adventures in Alaska and Jeddah will also feature in the stories. The launch is being organised by Silver Thread in conjunction with Wexford County Council.
Silver Thread was founded in Spring 2017 by Dr Cathy Fowley and Carmel Conroy and is aimed at encouraging older people to tell their stories and to publish them as part of their legacy.
