Irish Mensa is an administrative region of British Mensa, and encompasses the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland (a province of the United Kingdom). As such it is unusual in covering more than one country.

Irish Mensa Committee

Irish Mensa governs its internal affairs by means of an elected Irish Mensa Committee. There has regularly been disagreement between the IMC and the BMC over the degree and terms of autonomy accorded Irish Mensa, a situation arguably compounded or aided by the sometime presence of an Irish Mensa Officer to act as liaison between the two.


The Chairman of the IMC, currently Maureen Guthrie, acts as the Regional Officer.

Past chairmen:

  • Geoff Owens
  • Judy Hewitt


The regional newsletter is titled Impress (Irish Mensa press).

Honourary President

David Schulman is the Honourary President of Irish Mensa.
