Mayor to display his array of photographs

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 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 Hearty, Paddy Woods and Dominic Dennis, to name but a few.

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