Mu­sic at the Gate is a su­perb idea

Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS -

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.
