Joyce Country Men’s Shed / Seid na bhFear Dhuiche Sheoigheach was formed in November 2018. Registration number IMSA 000494. We had 19 paid-up members in our first year 2019 and an additional four members joined in January 2020. We welcome anyone who wants to visit for a cuppa or join in our activities when our shed is open.
Our shed is blessed to have very active talented members who are willing to share their skills in woodwork, mechanics, bikes, video making, furniture refurbishment. etc. Joyce Country is a cultural region of North Connemara and an area of South Mayo. Most of our members come from Clonbur, Cloughbrack, Cornamona and Maam Valley areas.
