The Chamber was established in 1984 by a group of local business people to help develop the local business community. Instrumental in setting up the Chamber were Kevin Molloy of the Molloy Group, Joe Gallagher, Bank of Ireland, Tallaght, Noel McElhatton of Johnson & Johnson and Brian O'Reilly of BP O'Reilly & Co.
In 1995 the Chamber changed its name to South Dublin Chamber and became the second Chamber in Ireland to receive accreditation under the CCI quality programme in 1996. In 1999 the Chamber purchased Tallaght Business Centre from the IDA and it has become a successful commercial concern. In 2003 we were named Ireland's Chamber of the Year and following on to represent Ireland as a finalist in the World Chamber Competition in Canada.
In 2005 we celebrated our 21st year as a leading Chamber and 'The Voice of Business in South Dublin.'
We continue now, in 2013 to give a voice to local business in the South Dublin area.
