German Prisoners in Oldcastle


Old Drogheda Society

Sunday December 14th 2014 at 3pm


December 2014 marks the centenary of the arrival of the first German and Austrian Prisoners of War in Oldcastle in 1914.

These mainly civilian prisoners were interned in the Oldcastle Workhouse which was specially fortified for their arrival. The Workhouse building itself no longer exists, but at its peak nearly 600 men were imprisoned there. Moylagh Historical Society and Meath County Council Library Service will commemorate their arrival at Oldcastle Railway Station by re-enacting the march from the railway station to the site of the Workhouse, escorted by British Army soldiers, on Sunday December 14th 2014 at 3pm. 



Letters relating to the camp will be read at a gathering in Oldcastle Library afterwards where the Navan Male Voice Choir have kindly agreed to sing a selection of German carols. A variety of Camp documents, photographs and artefacts will be on display in the library. If you would like to take part in the re-enactment. Please contact Oldcastle Library on 049 8542084 or Oldcastlelib@meathcoco.ie.

Guest For Lunch - Col Colm Doyle


Old Drogheda Society


 



Our Guest at the Annual Old Drogheda Society's President's Lunch next Sun 14 Dec 2014 in the Boyne Valley Hotel at 1pm is Col Colm Doyle, who grew up in Drogheda and was Ireland's top man at the United Nations in charge of international peace keeping. He is probably most famous for his involvement in Bosnia and Sarajevo in the 1990s and for his high profile clash with "The Butcher of the Balkans", Radovan Karadzic in the International Criminal Court in the Hague in 2003.

Colm grew up in Drogheda where he lived on the Chord Rd and attended St. Joseph's CBS. With his twin brother Francis he was part of the famous Drogheda Leaving Cert class of 1964 which included such luminaries as Eamonn Campbell of the Dubliners; Gerry Cullen of the Voice Squad; Nicholas Carolan Director of the Irish Traditional Music Archive; Paddy Clarke, Manager of the Louth G.A.A. Team and Seán Corcoran, Chairperson of the Old Drogheda Society.

Colm played hurling with the Wolfe Tones Club, Drogheda and was a member of the Louth Minor Team.

 
Colonel Doyle remains a force in retirement
 
Tickets   for the Lunch cost €25 and are available from Drogheda Museum Millmount 041-9833097. Today is the last opportunity to purchase tickets.
