Some other interesting stories
Liam did part of this as the very first Walk & Talk last year, but a number of people who missed it requested he do it again. He has added a lot of new material for what should be an interesting evening.
Meet at the front of Scholars Hotel at 7.25 pm, ( Park in the pubic car park opposite the VEC).
All are welcome but please book places in advance by ringing Drogheda Museum Millmount 041-9833097 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org as places are limited.
There is no charge for the tour but small donations will be accepted.
The event should last no longer than 90 minutes
