Drogheda, Co. Louth

Today's Drogheda is a busy, bustling town located astride the River Boyne. Many groups of settlers, pre-historic, Celtic, Vikings and Norman had a hand in Drogheda's shaping and each left a distinctive mark in the locality. The street plan has not significantly altered since the 13th century. Following its streetÂ’s therefore visitors will be treading age-old ways, in the wake of the Irish chieftains, English Kings, Anglo-Irish earls and eminent church officials, who have walked these same streets, on their busy comings and goings down through the long centuries of repression under the English, and afterwards.
