Drogheda’s Community Historian Brendan Matthews is back with a new walking tour as part o fthis years September Walking Festival. Brendan will take you on a 17th century Walk n Talk across the old streets & lanes of Drogheda, where he will elaborate on what was happening within the town and its surroundings during this particular period of our storied-past.

Please note: This is a leisurely and laid-back walking tour, easy underfoot and presened in a very relaxed atmosphere.
