Remembering Kenneth Browne

We were saddened to hear of the death of Kenneth Browne, journalist and industrial archaeologist who specialised in field of Cornish steam engine houses. The Mine Heritage Committee of Avoca records its sympathy on his death and remembers him for his willingness to give his time and expertise freely to the committee. He will missed by many in the Avoca area because whenever he came to Ireland he always called to Avoca. He left us with invaluable knowledge of the Cornish technology on the Avoca mine heritage site. Irish Mine Heritage has lost a great friend.

 

Mens Shed Avoca

Following the launch of Avoca Mens Shed last year the members have been devising their programme for the next few months.

Woodenbridge Gold Club has kindly given permission to the group to hold their meetings in the old railway station beside the club. This iconic local building, which holds many fond memories for local people, has fallen into disrepair since the closure of the station, but it is the aim of the men’s shed group to undertake as much repair work as they can reasonably do to secure the fabric of the building and to allow its preservation into the future.

It has been agreed to devote two days a week to the preservation work-  Wednesdays and Thursday for the moment. Mondays and Fridays will be for individual members to pursue their own projects or undertake small tasks for the broader community. Already a bench has been made for the Garlcoil and some screening will soon be completed for Avoca Tidy Towns. Tuesday has been designed a social day when members will meet at the station at 10.00am (or earlier if outings are taking place) to chat, have a cup of tea play pool or cards and maybe have the occasional lunch.

It is hoped that by structuring the week in fashion new (and old) members can choose activities that might appeal/ If anyone is interested in finding out more they should come down any Tuesday.

Remember the shed is primarily a social network for men. The work is an incidental icebreaker and no skill is necessary.
