Day Trip – June 24

A great day was had on our day trip on June 24th. Thanks to Brian Howley snd Caitriona Chuinneagain for all their organisation.

Our first stop was in Dowth where we heard all about this historic area from our guide for the day Colin Byrne and visited the grave of John Boyle O’Reilly. We then visited Oldbridge House and the Battle of the Boyne site including the beautiful gardens where we were given an excellent talk on this historic battle. This is well worth a visit. On our walking tour of Drogheda we discovered some unique memorials in St Peters Graveyard and visited the impressive St Laurence Gate while Colin shared the facinaring history of Drogheda. The day finished with a beautiful meal in The Glenside.
