Lovely church in the centre of Drogheda. Very serene inside. Shrine to Oliver Plunkett in the church. Wide steps outside to sit and watch the world pass by.

The church steps were littered with Cigarette ends and tin cans. The church had a dungeon door on display for some unknown reason - best avoided.
