Upcoming Nobber Events



Old Drogheda Society


On Sunday 20th August at 2pm, Cruicetown Cemetery Conservation Committee and St John's Old Cemetery Restoration Group will host - as part of Heritage Week - an illustrated lecture, by Gary Dempsey of Digital Heritage Age, in the George Eogan Cultural and Heritage Centre, Nobber. The lecture will present results of the community 3D imaging project undertaken on medieval tombs of Cruicetown and St John’s cemeteries in Nobber by Gary Dempsey of Digital Heritage Age. 

This project to digitally record some of the ancient monuments in Cruicetown cemetery has been funded by the Heritage Council to the sum of €1000, in the recently released round of Community Heritage Grants.


This work will help digitally preserve such monuments as the 17th century Cruise Tomb and associated ‘high’ cross which are at long-term risk from the effects of weathering.


It is a joint project between Cruicetown Cemetery Conservation Committee and the St. John’s Old Cemetery Restoration Group in Nobber. There, the Balfe Tomb, Priest’s Tomb and Cruise Tomb will also be recorded by the non-invasive method of photogrammetry.


On Saturday 1st July and Sunday 2nd July 2017 volunteers from both groups were instructed in this recording technique by heritage professional Gary Dempsey of Digital Heritage Age. The 3D images of the monuments will be posted online and will be publically displayed at an event in the George Eogan Cultural and Heritage Centre, Nobber, on Sunday 20th August 2017 from 2pm till 4pm, held as part of Heritage Week.


The event, on Sunday 20th August 2017, will include an illustrated lecture, presenting results of the community 3D imaging project undertaken on medieval tombs of Cruicetown and St John’s cemeteries in Nobber.

Included below are some photos from the demonstration held last weekend by Gary Dempsey, in the George Eogan Cultural and Heritage Centre in Nobber, and at Cruicetown Cemetery on Saturday 1st July and in St John's Old Cemetery Nobber on Sunday 2nd July.
