Men's Shed

The Men's Shed from Marino-Fairview attended four creative workshops at Fighting Words over September and October. They wrote personal memoir stories that looked back at their various careers. They also collaborated on a fictional story called 'Just the Job'. The story is set in a typical workplace environment in Dublin in the late 1970s.
