The club was formed in 1997 by the amalgamation of Drogheda RFC and Delvin RFC.
The 2008–2009 season saw the Boyne 1st team claim Ireland's oldest trophy – the Leinster Towns Cup. The final was held in Ashbourne RFC on 19 April 2009 and Boyne beat their opponents on the day, Tullamore, 27–21. Boyne retained the cup in 2010, again facing Tullamore, winning 32–25.
The club is currently based at Shamrock Lodge rugby grounds in Drogheda, County Louth. There was a proposal to build a new ground which was agreed in principle in recent times. However, as with many other projects this has fallen victim to the global recession and all plans are on ice for the moment.
