Ansac Day

Old Drogheda Society

Tomorrow April 25th is Anzac Day, to mark the centenary of the landing of Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (Anzacs) on the Turkish shores of Gallipoli on 25 April, 1915.

The current World War One Exhibition in Drogheda Museum Millmount, notes that two Drogheda men died on that day, 100 years ago. Private Stephen Byrne aged 40 from the Marsh Road a member of the Royal Dublin Regiment killed at Gallipoli and Private Owen Farrell aged 20 from Patrick Street, a member of the Royal Irish Fusiliers, killed in France. 

This weekend is an ideal opportunity for those who have not yet seen our World War One Exhibition to do so.

Drogheda Museum Millmount is open Saturday 9.30am to 5.30pm and on Sunday 2pm - 5pm
