Cultural Visit To Drogheda


Thirty-six members of the group recently enjoyed a cultural visit to Drogheda. The three day trip set out on Friday November 25th and returned on Sunday November 27th 2005.
Upon arrival, the group were met by Sean Collins, the former Lord Mayor of Drogheda, who gave a talk on the town and it's role in the Great War and the part played by Ireland as a whole during that conflict.
The next morning the group made its way to the Drogheda War Memorial which is a celtic cross with the names of 400 men from the area who fought in World War One. A wreath was laid on behalf of the visitors by Derek Graham from Dungannon and our current Chairman, Wesley Wright, pronounced the exhortation.
