Former Olympic athlete, wellness speaker and Flogas brand ambassador, David Gillick, visited the Drogheda Men’s Shed recently where a new three-year energy partnership between Flogas and the Irish Men’s Shed Association (IMSA) was announced.
As its new energy partner, Flogas will be offering special discounts on electricity, natural gas and LPG to the IMSA’s affiliated Sheds in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Flogas will also be supporting the organisation’s work through many exciting initiatives over the coming years.
Commenting on the news, John Rooney, managing director, Flogas Ireland, said, “We are delighted to partner with the Irish Men’s Sheds Association and supporting the valuable work they do in keeping the Sheds a warm, safe and hospitable place for all its members.”
The Drogheda Men’s Shed has over 100 members, making it one of the largest in Ireland. It is in the process of renovating its new home in Donore, with the members undertaking much of the work themselves, including bringing the allotments, polytunnels and orchard back into use.

Liam Reynolds from the Drogheda Men’s Shed said, “We were delighted to host the launch of the partnership and even more delighted with the savings we’ll make because of it. It’s a very uncertain time for everyone and having a major brand like Flogas in your corner gives you that extra bit of confidence in moving forward.”
IMSA chief executive Barry Sheridan and partnerships manager Frank Dillon were also at the launch. Barry said, ‘Men’s Sheds are all about empowering communities, and the support of such a major player in the energy sector means that’s being recognised at the highest level.”
Founded in 2011, the Irish Men’s Sheds Association (IMSA) has overseen the rapid growth to over 450 sheds on the island of Ireland. Men’s sheds are community spaces that allow men to share skills, engage with their communities and improve their wellbeing. See www.menssheds.ie.
