European Culture Night This Evening @ Drogheda Museum Millmount



Old Drogheda Society



Tonight is European Culture Night and the Old Drogheda Society is delighted to announce that Drogheda Museum Millmount will stay open until 9 pm with a reduced admission fee of only €2 for adults with FREE entry for children ( under 14) applying after the normal closing time of 5.30 p.m. There will also be a talk on "Millmount Tower of Strength" by Brendan Matthews in the tower at 7.30 pm

Please spread the word that our local fully accredited museum is open late this evening as it is an ideal opportunity for those unfamiliar with the museum to learn about our shared heritage and enjoy viewing the wide range of rare and interesting artefacts from many periods of the past. 

As well as the late opening of the museum we have organised a very special event for Culture Night 2017, for this annual countrywide celebration of our heritage. The great Tower that overlooks the town will be the venue for a very interesting talk by the renowned community historian, Brendan Matthews. Brendan has given many talks in the past and has led many guided walks and has never yet been found wanting in his entertaining and instructive delivery of so many aspects of our history.  His passion for the preservation, appreciation and promotion of our heritage is second to none.

On this occasion Brendan will tell us the story of Millmount and the use of the site through the ages including its long association with military objectives due to its very strategic location.  The site, however, holds some surprises too and there is sure to be some very interesting information emerging from Brendan’s contribution as we follow the development of the site through the varying political and social changes down the centuries.

Before and after the talk you can absorb the wonderful bird’s eye view of the town and the surrounding countryside in daylight and later in the darkness.  Altogether you can expect an unforgettable experience.
Places will not be reserved and there will be no admission fee but a voluntary donation will be accepted on the night.
