Our History

Established in 1994 as the 'Swords and District Chamber of Commerce', an amalgamation with the 'D15 Chamber' in 2011 led to us becoming the accredited Chamber for the entire Fingal region.

Today, the Chamber consists of member businesses from every town in the county - from Balbriggan in the north to Santry in the south, and from Howth in the east to Blanchardstown in the west.

Past Presidents

With a 30-year history, Fingal Chamber has been at the epicentre of innovation and enterprise since 1994. Our founders and past presidents were some of Fingal's finest innovators, entrepreneurs and philanthropists.

Today, the role of President is an honour assumed by leading local business people. It’s been held by senior figures from right across the county, working in all sectors of our economy.
