Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

THE Do­mini­can com­mu­nity will host a spe­cial Mass of Re­mem­brance - for those who have passed away and their fam­i­lies - on Sun­day Novem­ber 26th at noon in the Do­mini­can Church .

The mass was held for the first time last year and it will con­clude with a spe­cial ‘ hands across the Boyne’ event jist af­ter mass.

Peo­ple will be in­vited to toss flow­ers in the Boyne to mark the bound­ary be­tween the for­mer two towns, brought to­gether by a Do­mini­can priest.

‘Drogheda in Meath’ and ‘Drogheda in Oriel’ were united in 1412 af­ter a plea by Fr Ben­nett who was disil­lu­sioned with the fight­ing be­tween the two sides of the town.

‘ The event is sym­bolic of how the tide of time has brought us to­gether and we found the lay­ing of flow­ers into the Boyne as very touch­ing last year,’ Fr Jim Don­leavy stated.

‘Ev­ery­one is in­vited to come along and be part of the oc­ca­sion.’
