Review of St Peter's Church

Reviewed 26 February 2017

Even if your not in Drogheda town it's well worth making the effort to visit St Peter's simply for the little side altar/museum regarding St Oliver Plunkett - a Catholic Arch-Bishop who was hung, drawn and quartered for treason (promoting the Catholic faith) in the 17th century. The side altar contains the head of St Oliver on display. You can get right up to it and see it from all angles.

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
