There was a great night had by all reminiscing over the good old days of the Abbey Ballroom Indoor Football League. We talked about how the players got involved, the preparation, the uniforms and of course the bruises the players ended up with after a great match in the ballroom. 

Some former players who were not able to attend the meeting have been sharing their old team photos and we would like to encourage anyone who has any old photos or memorabilia to get in touch or to bring them up to Millmount. 

Anyone with information or who would like to find out more about the project can get in touch with Drogheda Local Voices at Millmount by e-mail or telephone (041-9833097/
