Recognise the face, can't think of the name.
The Old Drogheda Society's Annual “Ghosts of Drogheda” walk will take place this year on Friday October 26th, departing from Millmount at 7.15 pm.
The walk will focus on Drogheda's bloody past and participants will be introduced to some of the characters who fashioned the town's history and hear stories of some of the happenings over the years.
The tour will feature tales of characters such as Amergin, St Patrick, Edward Bruce, Oliver Cromwell, Sir Arthur Ashton, St Oliver Plunkett, King William of Orange, King James, John Philip Holland, John Boyle O'Reilly and Anne Hardman who came back from the dead.
Participants might also like to stop off at Barney Mac’s pub on the Chord Road for a pint on their way home just in case the ghost of Joe Murphy returns like he did in 2015 to cause a local’s pint to explode. (See video below).
