Men’s Cookery Course Corca Dhuibhne / West KerryWritten by Lorcan
Can’t cook, can’t really cook or won’t cook! Want to cook?
Male? Unemployed? Underemployed? Seasonally employed? Retired?
Or just dreading the dark, coming months?
Liven up the winter by doing something enjoyable and learning a new (or newer) skill. North and East Kerry Development is offering a cookery course starting in October, one evening a week for 6 weeks. In addition to learning a new skill, the aim of the course is to provide a social outlet for men. The course programme is negotiable – you will have the opportunity at the start of the course to discuss what you would like to do with the tutor. The course is partly subsidised by NEKD, there will be a minimum cost for participants, but it will be affordable to all.
Once this course has been successfully completed, we would like to continue on with something else. The eventual aim is to move towards establishing a support group for men in West Kerry.
*(A Men’s Shed is any community-based group for men of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.) For more information have a look at http://www.menssheds.ie
Tá NEKD chun cúrsa cócaireachta a chur ar fáil do fhir atá dífhostaithe, fostaithe páirt-aimsearach, éirithe as oibre agus nach bhfuil ag súil leis an geimhridh.
Tá sé ar intinn againn an chúrsa a thosnú i mí Deireadh Fómhair agus go leanódh sé i gcóir 6 seachtain. Ní amháin scileanna cócaireachta nua atá i gceist, ach spás nó áit soisialta a cruthú d’fhir.
Beidh seans ag na rannphartaithe clár an chúrsa a leagadh amach i dteannta an teagascóir agus plé a dhéanamh an mbeadh suim acu leanúint ar aghaidh nuair a bheidh an chúrsa seo thart.
