The Foundation

DNA Ireland was established by Lucy Gaffney in 2005 in response to a growing need for accessible, affordable DNA testing within Ireland. We combine industry expertise with state-of-the-art DNA technology to deliver high quality, reliable DNA test reports. These reports can be for personal use or legal matters.

The company was acquired by the SYNLAB group in 2017.
