Men’s Shed col­lec­tion of sto­ries

Wexford People - - NEWS -

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.
