No Fleadh but another busy week ahead in Drogheda

Front Page

You could be lucky and see whales passing by the head at Clogherhead on Saturday. Members of the Irish Whale & Dolphin Group will be there to help you.

The fleadh may be over but there’s still plenty to see and do in the Drogheda area this coming week.

Some highlights are whale watching with the Irish Whale & Dolphin Group on Saturday, International rugby League (U16) at Gormanston also on Saturday.

On Sunday there’s a Heritage Week walk along the canal at Oldbridge and the Wee County Vintage Day – Trashing, Vintage Cars, Pony Rides and family fun in Drumshallon Forge.
