Walk & Talk With Liam Reilly



Old Drogheda Society





Tomorrow, Wednesday evening (May 17th) sees the start of the Old Drogheda Society Walk and Talk series for 2017, which have proved to be since their inception in 2015, when Liam Reilly will lead the walk from Old Cornmarket Square at the top of Peter Street to St Mary's Bridge. 

While the distance that will be covered is very short, there is a huge amount of content detailing the buildings and former residents of these two historic streets 

This walk and talk will feature:
The Old Cornmarket
St John's Home
The Star & Crescent - where did it come from?
Clarkes Pub
St Peter's Parochial Centre
The Thornton family who  took part in the 1916 Rising
Mrs Lovely's pub
The Argus
The Central Hotel
McGranes pub
The Whitworth Memorial
Costelloes Pub
Daly’s Pub
Batchelor’s Lane
The Augustinian Church
Galbraith’s Bakery
Collins Hardware
Bessexwell Lane
The Cosy Bar( Somewhere Else)
Tredagh Hotel/Round House
The Great Fire of Shop Street
St Mary's Bridge. 

We hear of some of the great characters who lived here, such as the man who would not leave his burned out premises for seven days as he didn't trust banks and all of his money was in a safe in the ruins of his shop.
We learn the location of Laundy's Castle and Harp Lane, and which windows were the work of Harry Clarke, the famous stained glass artist; and which event in 1932 finally forced Drogheda Corporation to invest in the world's only green fire engine - plus lots more.  

This is a repeat of a walk that had to be curtailed last year due to bad weather. It starts from outside St John's Home at 7.30 pm. All are welcome, there is no charge but donations will be accepted.
