1. €300 Euros off a staycation Plus €100 Euros Spending Money (LoveHolidays,ie)
We are currently having a fund raiser for Clonmellon Men's Shed to help purchase new equipment to replace our old equipment and pay off a few bills. There is a limit of €200 tickets for €10 Euros each, so when they are gone, they are gone!
If you want to buy a tick and support the men's shed, contact John Wilson from Tidy Towns or pop down to the shed and ask for Barry Mangan. We have received great prizes from €300 Euros off a staycation to car dashcams.
As they say, if you are not in, you cannot win!
We are pleased to announce that we have secured a plot in the local community garden for the shed. This means that sheds members who like gardening, can now plant fruit and veg and managed the plot.
Thanks to John Wilson for organising this for us.
As we get older, our health takes priority and focusing on this as we get older, will help us lead a happy, healthy life. We all know that a bad diet, smoking and drinkiing are not very beneficial to our health. We also know that as we get older, our bodies cannot produce the proteins and vitimins that it could produce when we were younger. So what can we do to help ourselves with our health? Well, Clonmellon Men's Shed has an open mind to alternative solutions as we know that big pharma do not have all the answers.
We are currently trying out and testing structured water. We have already heard from men who have various health conditions like prostate cancer, high blood pressure and heart problems, inform us of the benefits of structured water in their life and how healthy they feel by drinking it on a daily basis. The science backs up everything they have told us but for the boffins out there, here is the science bit.
What is structured water?
Structured water is a molecular arrangement of water molecules that exists when water is near hydrophilic (water loving) surfaces. Much like ice, water molecules join together in hexagonally structured single layer sheets. Unlike ice, however, the sheets are flexible and move independently as they are not glued together by protons. The majority of the water in your body is structured water as your bodily tissues are hydrophilic.
How does vortexing create structured water?
In a properly designed vortex, some water molecules dissociate into hydrogen and oxygen. This newly created oxygen and any oxygen already dissolved in the water is mixed up uniformly. Oxygen itself is a hydrophilic element. Hexagonal sheets of structured water grow outward from the oxygen, layer by layer.
Structured water has always existed, but science just now noticed.
Chemists, biologists, physicists, engineers, and medical doctors graduating today (right now!) are not learning about the existence of structured water. That is, unless they were residents in Professor Gerald Pollack’s laboratory at the University of Washington. In his book “The Fourth Phase of Water” (published 2013) Dr. Pollack describes exactly what structured water is and discusses the mountains of scientific data from his experiments over the last several years.
While it may take awhile before you can discuss structured water with your doctor or that scientist who lives down the street from you, currently Dr. Pollack’s book is the best resource on the topic. It is well-written and we highly recommend it to anyone interested in structured water.
Structured water is a battery.
The totality of structured water does not just include the hexagonal sheets of water molecules mentioned earlier, but also the water immediately surrounding them. As the hexagonal layers grow, protons are ejected into the nearby water. This creates a most unexpected phenomenon - an electrical potential (voltage) between the structured water and the water surrounding it. In other words, structured water stores energy, much like a battery.
You might be wondering, “If structured water is a battery, what charges it?” Dr. Pollack discovered that structured water grows (charges) by absorbing radiant energy. Both light waves and infrared waves, for example, charge structured water with energy.
If our bodies are filled with structured water, why do we need more?
Structured water is a battery that needs constant charging. Energized structured water recharges the liquid battery of the body. When the body has sufficient energy, its aqueous interior is highly charged allowing for optimized cellular and metabolic function in addition to greater hydration and detoxification.
As many diseases are rooted in toxicity, dehydration, and improper cell function, consuming energized structured water may improve health in a number of ways. Recent experiments even suggest that water structuring is responsible for proper blood and lymph circulation in the body.

A French cleat is a way of securing a cabinet, mirror, artwork or other object to a wall. It is a molding with a 30–45 degree slope used to hang cabinets or other objects.
French cleats can be used in pairs, or with a cleat mounted to the wall and a matching edge cut into the object to be hung.
The wall side of a French cleat can be mounted securely without having to hold the full weight of the cabinet while securing it. The cleat will not be seen while in use, so it does not matter where it is drilled; this means that it can be screwed into wall studs relatively independent of the lateral position of the cabinet. The cleat can be the full length of the cabinet, so it allows supporting the cabinet at least at every stud behind it. If the wall cleat is left slightly shorter than the cabinet, the cabinet can be shifted left and right slightly after it is hung, for perfect positioning.
Once the cleat is secured to the wall, the cabinet can be simply lifted onto it. Because no fine maneuvering is required, even a relatively heavy cabinet can be hung easily this way.
The bottom of the cabinet can be secured to the wall to be sure that it will not get pushed off the cleat while in use.
We have decided to use French Cleats in our shed as it gives us flexibility in how things are positioned and located on our bench. If we decide to move things around, then we can do this very easily with this design. Here is a tutorial video about French Cleats.
Coming in from the (Dublin) - Come off the M3/N3 motorway and follow the signs for N52 (Mullingar). Clonmellon is 10km from Kells heading west. Follow the N52 into Clonmellon and just as you enter the village, there will be two cottages on the left hand side. The Shed is located after the second cottage.
Coming in from the West (Mullingar) - Follow the N52 from Mullingar thru Delvin and carry on to Clonmellon. Drive through Clonmellon town and after you pass the church, the shed will be on the right had side beside a metal framed garage.
