On Saturday morning next, April 30th, the Old Drogheda Society will officially launch their latest publication 'Reflections on the 1916 Rising' in Drogheda Tourist Office in the Tholsel, West Street between 12noon and 1.30pm. 

A number of locals artists, musicians and poets will perform at the book launch, which will begin with a young student from Scoil Aonghusa reading out the 'Children's Proclamation' in Irish from the steps of the Tholsel.

Uileann piper, Darragh O'Heiligh will play the Seamus Ennis composition 'Easter Snow' and there will be a number of other musical performances and poetical renditions. 

All members of the Old Drogheda Society are invited to attend and bring friends or family.

Copies of the new 206 page publication will be on sale from after the launch until 5pm.


In tandem to the book launch, the Drogheda Arts Festival will hold a family event on St Peter's Plazza in West Street which will provide an afternoon of crazy fun, daredevil aerial, sword swallowing, magic, circus and Afro-Caribbean beats and circus performances

A mystical journey into the world of circus, books, inventions and mayhem. Enter the private library of the distinguished inventor Tarquin Potts where he whips up a chaotic storm on his quest to outwit every circus artist’s worse enemy - gravity.
