"Drogheda on the Boyne offers the perfect opening location for DojoCon.  The river Boyne, where once the Salmon of Knowledge swam, provides the ideal backdrop of the venue for the Friday night Ignite talks. Inspiration and shared experienced will feature heavily in this event to be held in Bru, Bar Bistro."

The event is supported locally by Drogheda Borough Council, Drogheda Enterprise Centre, Louth Economic Forum and Louth County Enterprise Board and Lord Henry Mount Charles of Slane Castle.
