ONCE, THEY were sheds that housed horses, cows and pigs.
Now they are to become the premises for the first Mens' Shed in Sligo town.
The new Mens' Shed near the Cathedral will open tomorrow, Wednesday, at 11:30 am. The Mens' Shed provides an opportunity for men to come together and "talk face to face rather than shoulder to shoulder."
A number of sheds have already been set up throughout the county. Plans are afoot for more Sheds to be opened in Sligo town.
James Derwin, PRO of the new Men's Shed in Sligo, is delighted that a Shed is to open in the town.
"It's great, absolutely fantastic And the response we got around Sligo obviously helped," he said.
