Drogheda Fenians Return 13th & 14th July

We have a fantastic line-up for you this weekend, starting with our Genealogy day on Sat 13th where you can come along and learn how to trace your ancestors. We'll have a team standing by all day from 9.30am to 5.00pm in the Tholsel to help you with your queries and help point you in the right direction to start looking; that includes websites, local history sources and literary sources. David Snook of irishmariners.com will also be present, so if your ancestor was a mariner, David can help you trace them! Could you be related to someone famous? Or to a hero or a villain? Who knows what you'll discover once you start looking!

On Sunday 14th July is our main event, The Gathering Festival Party! Taking place from 2pm to 5pm in Millmount Cultural Quarter, it's a free fun-filled day for all the family with music, song and dance. There will be re-enactors, crafts, food stalls, traditional games, Museum and Tower free admission (so you can take fantastic views of the town in this beautiful weather) and the cannons will be fired to mark the occasion.
Music will be provided by Realta - award-winning trad group from Belfast, Huey & the Hobgoblins  Drogheda Orchestral Collective, Watery Hill boys, and many more. It's going to be a fantastic day, you'd be mad to miss it!
