Mescan makes an appearance in a new film made by Peter O Toole, of Hothouse Flowers.
To launch the film, Peter will be hosting a live virtual gathering on YouTube on Friday 26 March at 7pm – TONIGHT!
He hopes that as many Shedders and Men’s Shed supporters as possible from all over the country will come and join him for a chat and a cuppa. Tune in live at 7pm on Friday 26 March here: https://menssheds.ie/when-the-shed-light-is-on/
Peter has been a fan of the Men’s Sheds movement for many years and this new project is an online celebration of the men, of the sheds and of the bond keeping everybody connected during lockdown. The hour-long film features performances and messages for Shedders from musical luminaries such as Mary Coughlan, Joe Chester, Mundy, John Spillane, Greenshine, Gerry O Connor, Ken Whelan, Grainne Hunt, Maitiu O Casaide and Cormac Begley.
The film also highlights the men of the sheds as Peter went on a journey around each shed in Tipperary to meet members. From gardening in Tipperary town to singing in Cahir, Peter did it all! He filmed in Clonmel, Mullinahone, Carrick-On-Suir, Silvermines and more to find a true sense of the value of the sheds and the positive impact that they have on the local community.
The film was made with the support and assistance of Tipperary County Council and the Healthy Ireland Initiative
