About the company

Dromod Boxty are artisan food producers based in Co Leitrim. They have been making traditional homemade products from old Irish recipes that have been in the family for generations. Established by Timmy and Angela Faughnan in 1990 in their family home after finding there was a gap in the market for wholesome authentic traditional Boxty. Shortly after setting up they added some other offerings to their range including Potato bread and fluffy Pancakes.

Now over 30 years later, Dromod Boxty is producing and delivering multi award-winning, high quality, food fresh daily to stores all over the West, North West, Midlands and Dublin. More recently the company have started distribution to the States with big plans to expand supply nationwide around Ireland.

Sourcing all its ingredients locally where possible. Now this family business is in its second generation with Aine (Timmy and Angela's daughter) taking over in 2015. Aine has added a fresh perspective to the business bringing it from strength to strength. A lot has changed in 30 years but the family recipes have not.
