What’s a poor woman to do…?

…Put on his clothes, of course, and take up his place in the world!

Our slow sessions are back! For players of any instrument and at any level.  A selection of easy and well known session tunes will all be played slowly so that people in the early stages of their playing or those coming back to playing music can have an opportunity to play together in a friendly, supportive and informal setting. More experienced players who wish to refine their techniques at a slower pace are also very welcome. All players, and also singers are very welcome.

Follow the romantic antics of sisters Elinor and Marianne Dashwood as they fall in love, make mistakes and experience heartbreak for the first time. Picnic with family and friends on a summer evening, and follow the sisters as they find their path and lose their hearts, in their quest to find the perfect balance of sense and sensibility.

Recommended arrival time is 5.30pm to allow you to get parked and to find a picnic space. The event will go ahead rain or shine. Please bring your own rugs or low back seating only, and do consider the weather when dressing for the event.

Tours conducted by the staff of Drogheda Museum Millmount will recommence from 3rd May at 2 pm daily, Mondays to Fridays.

From its location on the banks of the River Boyne, Il Ponte (The Bridge, in Italian) is the link between the dhotel and the cosmopolitan town of Drogheda.  With a mission to redefine Italian cusine in the locality, it offers handmade pasta and authentic pizza from a traditional pizza oven, all masterfully created under the watchful eye of our head chef.
