Rural men’s groups are becoming increasingly popular across Ireland, and in Co. Roscommon three have been established in Ballaghaderreen, Drumboylan and Dysart.
The groups, which are supported by Roscom-mon LEADER Partnership, provide a social out- let for men across the county.
The Dysart Rural Men’s Group was established in 2007 and its twenty members meet every Tuesday at Dysart Community Centre. To celebrate their tenth anniversary, the group made the decision to produce a book in January 2017 and that book, titled ‘Dysart Rural Men’s Group – Celebrating Ten Years’ will be launched on Monday, March 26th at Dysart Community Centre (the launch was previously postponed due to Storm Emma).
The book will include photographs and articles from the last decade and “captures ten years of memories, fulfilments, achievements and com- munity spirit” according to group coordinator, Noel Hoare from Roscommon LEADER Part- nership.
The book will be launched on Monday, March 26th by Cathaoirleach of Roscommon County Council, Cllr. Orla Leyden, at 7 pm in Dysart Community Centre.
