Welcome to the Boyne Valley Trails September Walking Festival.

Community Historian and Boyne Valley Trails guide Brendan Matthews has been researching the life of Jenny Hodgers (alias Albert Cashier) from Clogherhead for many years, contacting family members and tracing eye-witness accounts of her life in Clogherhead before leaving dressed as a teenage boy, assuming a new identity and seeking advernture amidst the American Civil War.

In this special evening Presentation Talk, Brendan follows the early life of this girl at Clogherhead before she began her adventurous life as a Union Army Soldier in America and the kind-hearted Irish Priest, who was the only person to communicate with her and who revealed who she was in her former life and the great compassion and understanding he showed as he befriended this remarkable woman.

We will be capturing photo and video content as part of the Boyne Valley Trails September Walking Festival. By purchasing a ticket you are consenting to your image being taken and used by the group for the future promotion of walks and events. All care will be taken to exclude minors in content captured.

The Boyne Valley Trails September Walking Festival is sponsored by Failte Ireland and supported by Love Drogheda BID (Business Improvement District-Drogheda ratepayers).
