New Nest Boxes by our Men’s Shed

20150310_200459- Men's Shed Nest Boxes10th March 2015, the Millstreet Mens Shed presented members of Millstreet Tidy Town association with 12 nest boxes.

The nest boxes which were beautifully built by the Men’s Shed  and will be strategically located around the greener parts of Millstreet. Mainly the Town park, Clara Rd, Community school and perhaps even across from the Men’s Shed so the lads can observe their handy work.

There are 3 different types of nest boxes involved and a huge amount of effort and craftsmanship was placed into the creation of these nest boxes.

More information will be available on nest boxes on Millstreet Tidy Town website, which will be up and running in the coming weeks.

Many thanks to all involved. Pictured are Bertie Buckley and members of Mens Shed and Derry Sheehan and Kieran Murphy of Millstreet Tidy Town.
