There was plenty of tea, coffee, biscuits and chats on offer, and local politicians including Minister Shane Ross and Catherine Martin TD were in attendance.

Photo collages from all the group’s activities and days out were on show, as well as a 10-minute video that gave the packed room a real insight of what a local men’s shed means to its members.

Speaking at the event in Ballinteer, founder and secretary Sean Mc Loughlin said: “I am very grateful to Dundrum FC for allowing us the use of their clubhouse.

“The lads at the club have been nothing but supportive of the Ballinteer Men’s Shed over the past 12 months, only for them we may not sitting here one year later.
