Walk & Talk With Brendan Matthews @ 28 June 2017

Old Drogheda Society

Pic Of The Day

The Old Drogheda Society Summer series of Walk & Talks continue tomorrow evening when Brendan Matthews will lead the walk which will begin at St Dominic's Bridge and will cover Industries, trade & employment along the River Boyne.

The walk will proceed to The Haymarkett Bridge then to Dyer St, Shop St. to Bullring and on to the various industries along the Scotch Hall Complex ending at the D Hotel area.

This area provided thousands of jobs in the brewing, distilling, milling, foundry and manufacturing industries, many almost forgotten, but Brendan will recall in his own special way, when Drogheda was one of the major industrial centres on the island.

Please meet up at 7.25 pm for 7.30 pm departure from St Dominic's Bridge.

There is no set charge but small donations to the Old Drogheda Society are welcome.
