The Irish Men’s Sheds Association was formed in in January 2011. Our mission is to support the development of the burgeoning Men’s Sheds movement throughout the island of Ireland.
The Irish Men’s Shed Association (IMSA) is a member-based organisation which exists to maintain links and share information among the network of men’s shed in Ireland. We also act as a representative body to carry the message and ethos of men’s sheds onto the national stage.
As a grassroots organisation, we believe strongly in the autonomy of each individual shed, as we strive for a future in which all men have the opportunity to maintain and improve their well-being on their own terms within their own communities.
We aim to make it as easy as possible for any like-minded group of men in Ireland to set up, run and maintain a Men’s Shed. To this end, we provide information, resources and support to our member sheds throughout Ireland; listening and responding to our members’ concerns is a cornerstone of our ethos.
We meet formally on Thursdays from 1000 til 1400 but there are members present most weekdays
