Now that we have stepped over the threshold of a new year and into 2014, the Old Drogheda Society would very much like to take the opportunity to wish all our members a Happy New Year. While mindful of the maxim that no news is good news we would nevertheless persist in our wishes that you have a Happy News Year.
Here at the Old Drogheda Society we will do out best to keep you informed of any news that is germane to the work that we do. History might not be news in the accepted sense of the term but historical finds, fresh investigations, new discoveries of artifacts, innovative approaches to history gathering all combine to make news.
Throughout the coming 12 months the Society will be ploughing on with its work of making local history accessible to Droghedians and those further afield with an interest in the topic.
The type of work the Society is engaged in may be found by following or reading both this blog and our Facebook page where efforts are made to keep the public informed of ongoing activities and upcoming events. All members as well as the general public are invited to contribute to our Internet page.
It is our hope that the combination of this blog and our Facebook page will in some small way contribute to a better public understanding.
For those with more than a passing interest in local history the Old Drogheda Society might just be the type of body you could join.
