Check In and Check out ... what it is ... that the ODS is about

KEEP UP TO DATE with everything that's going on up in Millmount Cultural Quarter, home of the Old Drogheda Society and Drogheda Museum, by checking out our website at www.droghedamuseum.ie.

We now have a fantastic team of Helen Madden and Anthony McIntyre editing and constantly updating our Blog, Facebooks (for both Museum and Society) and Twitter. There's loads of fascinating topics going up daily and you can even interact and send in comments and information yourself. For instance
we recently got a post from an archaeologist in Australia who came across a metal bottle-top in an excavation with the words "J.P. O'Mullane's Whiskey Drogheda" ... (But we can find no trace of an O'Mulllane in 19th century Drogheda ...Any ideas anybody?)


...  Just go to the museum website www.droghedamuseum.ie and click on "Drogheda Museum News and Views" which brings you to the Blog (a sort of online magazine)

OR ...

...run your cursor over the 2 Facebook symbols (the little "f" signs) on the upper right hand side of the page and little pop-ups will appear telling you which one is the link for the Drogheda Museum Facebook Page or the link for the Old Drogheda Society Facebook Page.And if you sign up to Twitter (the little "t" sign is the link) you can get regular notifications of updates and additions to all these pages!


...  of some recent material on the blog. It's an article by Helen Madden on some of the craft-artists in the Millmount Cultural Quarter who are now more famous internationally than they are in Drogheda!

  1. Good afternoon. I just came across this page while looking up J.P. O'Mullane for my mother. She has a book from 1878 published for The Society For The Preservation Of The Irish Language. There is an inscription hand written inside the book reading "Presented to Mr. J.P. O'Mullane with compliments". There is no signature. Just felt I would let you know that he was alive in the 19th century.

    1. Hi Mr. Moroney,

      Sorry this has taken a while to get back to you; do you have any extra information on that J.P. Mullane? It could be related to our query about the whiskey lid.

      Many thanks!
