A series of six outdoor murals throughout the town focusing on key figures and moments from Ireland’s mythological past, complemented with an audio tour available via your smartphone. 

On the Day: Meet at Droichead Arts Centre, Stockwell St at 11.50am, pick up your mural map, and meet our tour guides: Actress/writer – Grainne Rafferty, and Mythologist, Anthony Murphy.  Then, take a stroll throughout Drogheda and listen to the mythological stories behind the murals!

DRAWDA is a legacy programme, making use of shared public outdoor streets & walls, and engaging with a new and wider audience. Working with local collaborators, the local authority and key cultural providers, it has created a visual vibrancy and a cascade of colour in the town, reinvigorating derelict public places and streets. The project is inclusive, and has supported over 16 artists in its delivery to date.

Produced by Droichead Arts Centre and Love Drogheda B.I.D.S (Business Improvement District Scheme), in partnership with Louth County Council Arts Office and curators Dee Walsh and Brian Hegarty (33-45) and mythologist Anthony Murphy. Funded by the Arts Council under In the Open | Faoin Spéir Initiative, Louth County Council, Love Drogheda BIDS and Town & Village Accelerated Measures funding. Supported by the d hotel, Colourtrend Paints and Murtagh’s of Drogheda.
