Founded by the Anglo-Normans in the 12th Century in the heart of the “English Pale” and originally forming two walled cities, Drogheda and its hinterland reflects the rich and stormy history of Ireland from the Norman invasion in 1169 to the Battle of the Boyne in 1690.

On this coach tour, organised by the Tara Centre, we will visit:

  • Monasterboyce, site of the finest High Cross in Ireland;
  • historic Millmount, scene of a Cromwellian massacre in 1649, and the focus of a clash between rival forces during the Irish Civil War of 1922;
  • the streets of the historic ‘Old English’ town of Drogheda with its ‘Tholsel’ and historic churches;
  • the superb Interpretive Centre commemorating the Battle of the Boyne;
  • the village of Slane in Co. Meath, birthplace of the Irish Poet Francis Ledwidge who died in the Great War in 1917.

Morning Coffee and lunch will be provided.
Some moderate walking will be involved, so come prepared!
