Portlaoise Women’s Shed up and running

All women invited to third meeting tomorrow (February 29)

Following on from previous communication our Portlaoise women’s shed was set up on the 14th of February and we are having our 3rd meeting on this Thursday the 29th of February in Laois Partnership on the Timahoe Road. All ladies welcome.

On Monday this week (the 26th of February) we met with representatives from Laois County Council Aiden McCane and Stephanie Kellly from Estate management at the community centre in St Brigids to discuss how Laois County Council can support our first women’s shed in Portlaoise .

We discussed all types of funding and supports Laois County Council and Laois Partnership can offer.

Chairperson Avril OBrien said

“We are very excited about our new venture” and Maria McCormack PRO said we are inundated with support and interest from the community.

We have been invited to visit both Athy and Tullamore women’s shed in the coming weeks.

We look forward to seeing everyone at 6pm Thursday the 29th to share lots of exciting news.
