Dromod Boxty is a family business through and through. Timmy and Angela Faughnan first started the business in 1990, when they identified a desire to preserve Ireland’s traditional food recipes, with Boxty being top of their list. Boxty, is a famous regional food that has deep roots in the Midlands and North West of Ireland, a region that Timmy and Angela call home.
Their passion and dedication in growing a successful local food business had a profound effect on their daughter Aine, who since 2015 has taken over the reins of Dromod Boxty. Aine has continued to grow the business with great success and always with an eye on the future and growing food trends.
The Faughnan family for over 30 years has been producing a delicious range of Boxty that stays true to tradition. Boxty is rooted in Ireland’s food culture, primarily popular in the Midlands and North West of the country. Variations differ from local area to area but the base ingredients include fluffy masked potatoes that are bound with flour, milk or buttermilk and eggs.
Traditionally Boxty is then cooked on a griddle. Boxty was so ingrained in Irish culture that it even had its very own folk rhyme! “Boxty on the griddle, Boxty on the Pan, if you can’t make Boxty, you’ll never get a man”.
Like for other families living in the region, Boxty played a big role in the Faughnan family, being a staple food at the family dinner table going back generations. In 1990, Tim and Angela Faughnan set up Dromod Boxty in order to ensure the continuation of this much-loved traditional food.
