With a Degree in Spatial Planning from DIT and Masters in Health Promotion from the NUIG, Edel Byrne has worked extensively in the area of health promotion in the community and workplace setting within the NGO sector and most recently in the area of preventive medicine and health promotion in the clinical setting. She is responsible for supporting the physical and mental health and wellbeing of the men’s sheds members through the design and coordination the IMSA's Sheds for Life initiative, which aims to build on the established health-promotion qualities of men's sheds by offering health information and resources to shedders.

"Through my work with the IMSA, I feel like I'm making a real difference to the health and wellbeing of a segment of society that can be at times to difficult to reach and engage with when it comes to the topic of health. The appeal of working with IMSA is the opportunity to work work with men’s strengths and through the ‘men friendly’ environment of the shed, we can effectively engage with men to look after their physical and mental health."

Paul Newman joined the IMSA in September 2015. Paul has responsibility for managing the shed membership of the association, as well as the provision of support and advice to sheds nationwide.

“ What I enjoy most about working with the IMSA is chatting with the sheds up and down the country on a daily basis. I like hearing about the projects they are working on and being able to advise and support them where we can. I also like hearing about the shenanigans and the tales that goes on in the shed”.
