Grassroots: Travellers Men's Shed Promo

Oct 30, 2012, 10:56 AM

A promo for episode 7 of ‘Grassroots’. This short form radio series is an Athena Media Production for Newstalk 106-108fm funded through the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland Sound and Vision Scheme. Radio producers Lisa Essuman and Robert Hope are traversing the country looking for local initiatives that are fuelling positive change from the ground up. This week we are in Neilstown, Dublin where the Clondalkin Travellers Development Group are running a Men's Shed project with a difference. Here young Traveller men come together to work on bicycle mechanics - chatting, socialising and learning how to repair and build bikes – It’s a area where there's often not a lot going on for young men - and particularly young Traveller men. This episode will broadcast on Saturday December 15th on ‘Shenanigans with Sile’ between 12pm-2pm.
