Drogheda, Gateway to the Boyne
A beautiful area on the east coast of Ireland, Drogheda and the Boyne Valley is steeped in ancient myth and legend, full of tragedy, romance, magic and evil.
Sites such as Newgrange and Knowth are renowned sources of evidence for those studying our ancient past. Established long after, Drogheda became important in its own right as a port with dealings the world over. Today, the remains of the old Anglo-Norman walled town sit side by side with centuries of development, each with its own story to tell.
In Drogheda, Gateway to the Boyne Paul McCann, a talented artist, and local historian Sean Collins have pooled their knowledge of this remarkable area and have portrayed a unique insight into the familiar, and not so familiar places and people.
