TAGHMON Men's Shed is just back from the national Fisherman's Friend Shed Series competition.

The village was one of 21 sheds competing in the finals with art creations that best depicted their community.

Taghmon Men's Shed showcased their piece of work portrating the village and some of its key features in front of an expert judging panel at the event which took place at the National Maritime Museum of Ireland, Dun Laoghaire.

The panel included editor of the Irish Farmers Journal and Irish Country Living, Mairead Lavery; Broadcaster, Marcus Connaughton and Martin Stimson, Area Business Manager, Fisherman's Friend.

'The quantity and quality of this year's entries was very impressive and it was great to see such a diverse range of artwork being created by members,' said Martin Stimson, Area Business Manager of Fisherman's Friend

The Fisherman's Friend Shed Series competition launched in 2016 in association with the Irish Men's Shed Association.

The local entry was called 'Taghmon Men's Shed in the heart of rural Wexford, Learning, Creating, Sharing and Remembering our past to help create a brighter future for our Community.'

KC Men's Shed from Castlemaine, County Kerry, won the competition.
