Period Costume in Laurence Street Today

A number of Old Drogheda Society members will be dressed in period costume today in Laurence Street, to support Drogheda's bid to attract Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann to the town.

The street will be transformed into 'Fleadh Street, to coincide with the visit of the Ard Chomhairle of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann to Drogheda in advance of the town's bid to bring this huge event to the Boyneside.

The Old Drogheda Society will also have a stand in the indoor market in the former Methodist Church from 11 am to 3 pm.

Drogheda Comhaltas branch musicians and dancers will perform the length and breadth of Laurence Street and there will be plenty of indoor activity in the indoor market and the Highlanes Gallery, there will also be food tastings, a traditional session in McPhails and the historic street will be decorated and blocked off to traffic.

If you get a chance drop down and join in the fun it starts at 11am and finishes at 3 pm.
