Our Support for Drogheda

Fitz Scientific started business in 1998 in a small terraced house in Carpenter’s Lane, Narrow West St, Drogheda, with 2 people. Drogheda is our home and we are very proud of where we come from. We actively support voluntary and business development initiatives, including the following:

We are supporters of this proposal and believe it will provide a structure for Drogheda’s enterprise to develop in the future. We will be voting yes in the forthcoming plebiscite. www.lovedrogheda.ie

Drogheda 10K

We were involved from the very start, when the then Boyne Valley 10K hit the road in May 2010. Since this time, this race has grown to be the best 10K run in Ireland, with 2,000 athletes on the start line every May Bank Holiday weekend. It is a key event in raising funds for the development of athletics in Drogheda. www.drogheda10k.ie 

Drogheda Young Innovators

This is an annual competition, encouraging Drogheda’s young people to see themselves as innovators in the areas of Science, Business and Social Enterprise. Currently 9 secondary schools in Drogheda and Dunleer compete to win this annual award. www.droghedayounginnovators.com

Boyneside Trail / Boyne Greenway

We are active supporters of the Boyneside Trail, a project to build a 17km cycleway from the Boyne Estuary at Mornington to Bru na Boinne Interpretation Centre at Newgrange. This is a key sustainable transport project and fundamental to the development of a strong Drogheda tourism economy.
