Drogheda Historic Trail

Over 800 years, Drogheda has been the stage for many of the events that have shaped Ireland’s destiny.

At one time, it could have been regarded as Ireland’s capital city; centuries later, it was port of departure for thousands of desperate famine victims. And in 1649, it became synonymous with one of the blackest chapters in Ireland’s history when Oliver Cromwell unleashed a degree of ruthlessness that still stirs emotions.

Highlanes Gallery- Nano Reid, ADAMANTINE

Highlanes Gallery marks the 40th anniversary of the death of Irish artist, Nano Reid, with a unique exhibition celebrating her life, work and legacy. Adamantine is a word suggesting something bold, unswerving, powerfully itself, attributes which pertain, not just to Reid’s work, but to the way she lived her life. Born in Drogheda in 1900, she forged her way determinedly through an artistic landscape dominated by males to become one of the most exciting and original artists of her generation, with a rich, brooding, evocative style completely her own.
