The 7th Annual Ghosts of Drogheda Halloween Walking Tours organised by Drogheda Museum Millmount will be taking place on Friday October 28th with two tours departing from the museum at 7.20 pm and 7.30 pm respectively.

Guides will explain the origins of the Samhain festival that became Halloween, where the name Halloween came from, the traditions of the festival, the story of Jack O Lantern and other customs associated with the festival. There will also be an introduction to Banshees, Pucas, Zombies etc.

The tours will relate to Drogheda's often bloody history and incidents such as the 1641 Siege of Drogheda, Cromwell's sacking of the town, the shelling of Millmount etc.

Some of the characters who contributed to that history will appear on the tour such as Oliver Cromwell, Judge Tandy (the hanging judge), Anne Hardman, who came back from the dead and more. They will also feature some of the interesting local folklore relating to Ghost Stories.

The tours are for adults and children over 11 years of age and cost €3.Tickets are now on sale in Drogheda Tourist Office.
