Oliver Plunkett

In the centre of the town - very interesting reading about Oliver Plunkett and what happened to him - also that his head is kept in the church

Went to see St. Oliver's Head, but was pleasantly surprised to find such a lovely church in Drogheda. The windows may not be as elaborately done as in some more well-known cathedrals, but they were beautiful never-the-less.

One of my favorite things to visit is old churches, and this one was certainly impressive! The stained glass and high ceilings are true works of art! This is a must see if you are in the area

Christmas Eve in St Peter's with the Drogheda Male Voice Choir. A welcome celebration of a special time of year with family and friends.

Good church to visit while in town. Oliver Plunkets head and cellar door on display here. A Spacious and historic old church. Many steps leading up. Christmas day mass here was disapponting. A nice big crib yes but no music, atmosphere and no choir . Far too formal.

Such a peaceful place. Beautiful both inside and out. Famous for the head and relics of St Oliver Plunkett and there's lots of displays, some interactive, about his life.

A place of quiet and contemplation right in the centre of town. Easy to find but there are difficulties for parking as in all towns. Worth the effort however if only to see at Oliver's relics. I got married here so I love it
