Drogheda

Pied Piper at the Droichead Arts Centre


You know the Christmas season is in full swing as EM Productions prepare to dazzle and delight on stage for the 6th time with their upcoming hilariously entertaining Panto, The Pied Piper.

In true panto style, the good the bad and the ugly will battle it out to see if once again good can conquer evil, which will have the audience booing, laughing and cheering along as the tale unfolds.

Don’t miss out on this wonderful Christmas tradition!


Think of a beautiful tapestry with many vibrant colours, of blues, soul and jazz. This is the incredible voice of Niamh Strong.

Born into one of Ireland’s musical families, Niamh’s father was legendary blues musician Rob Strong is the legendary Blues performer, while brother Andrew played Decco Cuff in The Commitments.

Made up on Brendan McCreanor (uilleann pipes), SJ McArdle (voice and guitar) and Barry Kieran (fiddle), Kern are Co. Louth’s best-loved contemporary folk band. Their debut album, False Deceiver, produced by Trevor Hutchinson (Lúnasa, The Waterboys), garnered significant national airplay with its mix of songs and tunes from the band’s home county, along with their own original material.

Drogheda is firmly becoming recognisable as a go to place for high quality classical music and with plans for the 2019/20 Drogheda Classical Music series unveiled, this reputation can be upheld. The season offers a broad range of classical music concerts, many of which are exclusive to Drogheda, and include a wealth of celebrated Irish and international musicians.

All concerts take place in St Peter’s Church of Ireland and begin at 7:30pm with a pre-concert talk at 7pm.

Drogheda Walks

A team of Drogheda locals came together to map four walks which highlight the natural beauty, built heritage and historical wealth of our town.   The walks range in length from the 1.5km ‘Five Bridges’ walk, to the 6.5km ‘Steps’ walk.  The 4km historical ‘Walls’ walk and pretty ‘Spires and Towers’ walks traverse both sides of the river and reveal great views.  

The walks are aimed at locals as much as visitors to enjoy, and you can share your photos on #droghedawalks
