Drinagh 1923–2023

Drinagh Co-operative Creamery Limited was founded in 1923. It was officially registered under the Industrial and Provident Societies Act on 13 November that year.

In 2023 Drinagh celebrated its centenary with Philip O’Regan given the task of writing a history of the society.  The completed book is now available throughout all the various Drinagh stores.  

The story of Drinagh represents in microcosm the social history of west Cork over the past century. It is a story of innovation, perseverance, a willingness to adapt and change. It is a success story. But above all else, the story of Drinagh is about people.
