International Men’s Day is celebrated annually on 19th November 2022. It is an opportunity for everyone to reflect on and celebrate the men in their lives and to consider the many positive contributions that men make to family, community, culture and society.

This year, Ballyhoura Development encourages everyone to #CelebrateMen on #IMD2022 through social media posts.


We simply invite you to do the following:

  1. Identify one man whose caring qualities you wish to celebrate.
  2. Highlight two of his caring qualities to him and offer praise.
  3. Nominate three of your male friends/family to come along and enjoy the day with Ballyhoura Development celebrating men’s quality attributes.
