Music at the Gate is a superb idea
BUILDING on the great work completed by the ‘Save the Gate group’, Darragh Ó Héiligh organised an event titled ‘Music at the Gate’ at St Laurence’s Gate.
Darragh says the aim of the event was to start a discussion within the community around the potential uses of the gate now that it has been closed to traffic. Darragh’s hope is that this becomes a centre piece for the community in Drogheda where local music and art can be celebrated.
With just two days planning, over 20 musicians entertained a crowd of hundreds during the three hour event. Musicians came from Drogheda, Dundalk, Dublin, Monaghan and Carlow.
It’s great to say that another ‘gig’ is planned for October 7th and local musicians are encouraged to participate.
I can feel the Fleadh fever already.
