Tea party for Hannah, Concert for Sudan and lots more happening this week

What's On

Drogheda musician SJ Mc Ardle played an amazing gig with the band KERN on board the Earl of Pembroke during the Irish Maritime Festival. He’s in action again on Friday, 16th of June at the “Trad for Sudan” concert for famine relief at the Droichead Arts Centre. Photo: Andy Spearman.

The sailing ships have sailed away over the horizon for another year but there’s still plenty happening in and around Drogheda in the next few days.

There’s another Walk & Talk this evening meeting at Garvey’s pub (in the car park not at the bar), loads of sport, a concert for famine relief in South Sudan at the Droichead Arts Centre, a Mad Hatters Tea Party in aid of The Warrior Princess Hannah Fund and the Drogheda Motor Show in dealerships all over town.
