An ex­hi­bi­tion of pho­to­graphs chron­i­cling some well-known in­di­vid­u­als from the town will open in The Tholsel on Thurs­day 17 Jan­uary 2019 at noon.

‘These pho­tos are a per­sonal col­lec­tion of Drogheda char­ac­ters that I built up over the years,’ said Mayor Frank God­frey.

‘These peo­ple may be gone but they’re not for­got­ten.’

The 300-or so pho­tos in­clude Shoe Shoe Duff, Ea­mon Briscoe the Singing Bar­ber, farmer Fran­cie Harty, Paddy Woods and Do­minic Den­nis, to name but a few of the many that the mayor has se­cured down the years..

Lo­cal his­to­rian Liam Reilly will give a talk on some of those pho­tographed and on the times they lived in.

It should make for a very in­ter­est­ing dis­cus­sion

All wel­come to come along and en­joy a great jour­ney down mem­ory lane.
