In June 2017 Paddy Callaghan took over the chains of office as the new President for 2017-2018.
Welcome from The Chamber President- Paddy Callaghan
At Drogheda Chamber we work hard in the background on behalf of our members and our town.
One of the main hurdles we have faced over the past number of years is finally being addressed with the proposed boundary review. Our efforts in the past to lobby on behalf of Drogheda and District and our members have constantly been tripped up by the belief within Government departments and indeed elected representatives that Drogheda’s population was in or around 30,000 and the level of in time and financial investment reflected that belief. The review should highlight that the actual population being served by Drogheda is almost 80,000 and that the method and level of service provision need to reflect this reality.
During my time as president I hope to see our membership base grow, I will work with and behalf local businesses and we want to continue with the successful networking events.
Here’s to continued prosperity for our members and our town.
Thank you for your support.
Drogheda & District Chamber is a volunteer-led business & enterprise group which seeks to identify the practical ways in which we can approve the general business conditions in the locality. We have a vision to create more business in the area and energise existing businesses by working together in partnership with elected and non-elected officials, local government and central government to improve the local and national business environment.
The Chamber has been in business since 1894, and has made a consistent and significant impact on business and the locality ever since. We strive to encourage our members to do better business locally, regionally and nationally and we offer local businesses the tools to network, to secure new customers, to drive local economic and social development and we provide a strong lobbying voice to Government.
