Well worth seeing, rich in history and not very crowded. To know of the miracle of Saint Oliver Plunket and to see his head on display is really something that is hard to explain. Might not be for the young ones.

Nice building on the outside, nice one inside too. One day before the pope arrived, it was a bit of balancing between please come and please don't. We all know why. Keeping a lid on things and sweeping the abuse under the carpet.

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.
