A brief company history:
Founded in 1887 by T.P. Whelehan, who was a community pharmacist, the business was passed onto his son, also a pharmacist, who, in the process of expansion, acquired a number of Sole Agency distribution agreements for the Irish market.

Initially located in Dublin's city centre, the business quickly outgrew the accommodation and a site in the northern suburb of Finglas was subsequently acquired in 1956.

In July 2004, the UniPhar Group acquired the Whelehan Group.

In October 2010, the Whelehan Group was sold to Verbena Limited, a 100% Irish-owned company. The Whelehan Group then moved to a new, state of the art suite of offices at the Bracetown Business Park in Clonee, Co. Meath.
